Professor Fradella's new monograph traces the development of defenses of excuse from their English Common Law roots to their various modern formulations under U.S.law. It includes an interdisciplinary, detailed analysis of the historical evolution of the insanity defense, the diminished capacity/responsibility doctrines and related criminal defenses of excuse based on mental illness, including genetic-based defenses, the Black rage defense, the PMS defense, Battered Women s syndrome defense, and the media intoxication defense. The study concludes with a discussion of the likely future of defenses of excuse in light of the U.S. Supreme Courts 2006 decision Clark vs. Arizona.
