    Abstract

    This volume is a resourceful study on current problems on the interface, law and psychiatry. It is not an anthology. With particular attention to psychiatric-legal issues in civil law, the Editor, Stephen Rachlin, has gathered the opinion of a seminal group of teachers, all active in the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, who have published on current civil law-psychiatric interface, and in a series of articles, have extended and clarified current issues. Gutheil and Mills enlarge on the conflicting models of the law and on clinical practice. The need for the law to study the viewpoint of psychiatry is made obvious by the isolation of the lawyer from readily available clinical literature. The conceptual models of psychiatry and law are reviewed to provide an underpinning for the discussion of the collaborators.
