A Review of Critical Issues in American Psychiatry and the Law, Volume 2
I like this book. In 1983, reviewing the first volume of this series  prepared for the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (Tri-State Chapter), I groused a great deal. I complained that papers were uneven in quality, and that many had been prepared for oral presentation rather than reading. While it might be an excellent textbook on forensic psychiatric problems, I felt this book would probably be of far less value to attorneys or to psychiatrists seeking information for specific cases.
