About this Item

235 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. LAW. Criminal law and mental health law. Practiced separately, these great powers of compulsory incarceration achieve a just balance between freedom and authority,between the rights of the individual and the desire of the public to protedct itself and its members. When mixed, however - as happens when courts must rule on the fitness of the mentally ill to be tried or on their responsibility for criminal conduct,and in sentencing the mentally ill for crimes - confusion and cruelty, injustice and inefficiency predominate. So argues Norval Morris in this controversial analysis of the relationship between individual autonomy and the two incarcerating powers of the state. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Norval Morris, Madness, Criminal Law, Insanity, Competency, Criminal Liability, Unconscious Acts, Somnambulism, Mitigation, Dangerous Offender, Agfgravation).
