Comprehensive and erudite, Forensic Psychiatry: Clinical, Legal and Ethical Issues, Second Edition is a practical guide to the psychiatry of offenders, victims, and survivors of crime. This landmark publication has been completely updated but retains all the features that made the first edition such a well-established text. It integrates the clinical, legal, and ethical aspects of forensic psychiatry with contributions from internationally regarded experts from a range of clinical professions.

The Second Edition features updates to all current chapters and several new chapters that explore:

  • The genetics of antisocial behavior
  • Disorders of brain structure and function that relate to crime
  • Offenders with intellectual disabilities
  • Older people and the criminal justice system
  • Deviant and mentally ill staff

Although the book focuses on jurisdictions in the UK, a substantial comparative chapter written by an international group from all five continents explores the different philosophies, legal principles, and style of services elsewhere.
