    Abstract

    Ralph Slovenko's Psychiatry and Law does not lend itself easily to evaluation. 736 pages of text, footnotes, appendixes, selected reading lists, and indexes clearly reflect an undertaking of heroic proportions. Every aspect of the interface of law and psychiatry is examined, from psychiatric evidence in tort liability to psychiatric evidence in criminal law. Issues are considered in terms of moral imperatives, legal practicalities, sociological implications, etc. To recognize the work and devotion invested in this massive textbook is to be overwhelmed.
