How responsible are mentally disordered offenders for their crimes? Aimed specifically at understanding the social context of the serious criminal offender who is deemed to be mentally abnormal, this new edition of Offenders, Deviants or Patients? takes into account the many changes in legal practice, methods of treatment and attitudes since the first edition was published in 1980. Herschel Prins examines the relationship between mental abnormality and criminal behaviour, the extent to which this relationship is used (or misused) in the criminal courts and the various facilities that are currently available for treatment.
Unique in its multidisciplinary approach Offenders, Deviants or Patients? will be invaluable to all those who come into contact with serious offenders.
