About the book:

The role of the psychiatrist in the court is on the increase. In this book, the author's main concern is twofold. 'The court has to be capable of understanding: exactly what it is that the psychiatrist is trying to tell the court about the accused; the limitations of the language and the concepts that the psychiatrist is using.' The reviews conclude that the author succeeds. "This book, by a psychiatrist, is written for lawyers. But it is a thoroughly good read and will prove fascinating to lay people. [Shea] is eminently qualified in the field...The legal profession and the judiciary...will be well advised to read it and have it available for reference...This long overdue text explains, in a clear and illuminating manner, the language and concepts of psychiatry..." (Robert Hayes, President, Mental Health Review Tribunal (New South Wales)).
