    Abstract

    This rather small (245 pages) book is the most comprehensive review of perhaps the most important case on the right to treatment for psychiatric patients. The book, based on presentations at a conference on the rights of mental patients held at the University of Alabama, Ferguson Center, 25–26 Sept. 1980, is edited by two psychiatrists from the University of Alabama, both of whom have had intimate contact with the Wyatt case and its consequences.
