This book provides an authoritative and highly readable review of the relationship between madness and crime. The book is divided into three parts, focusing on selected features of madness which have relevance to contemporary society. Part 1 discusses madness itself, exploring three main models cognitive, statistical, and emotional. Part 2 examines the links between madness and crime and which particular crimes are linked with which types of disorders. Part 3 is about the much neglected area of compulsion, an issue that has largely disappeared from public debate. Many of the mentally afflicted may have moved from victims to violators, yet fundamental questions remain in particular how to justify compulsory detention, and who should undertake the process? The answers to these questions have sociological, ethical, and jurisprudential elements that cannot simply be resolved by reference to medical authorities.
