From the United Kingdom, source of the Magna Carta, we have a well-ordered resource for many professionals concerning the care of the mentally disordered offender in the community. That most of the authors writing 13 chapters are from the United Kingdom in no way distracts from its usefulness for U.S. clinicians. Four authors are from the United States. No author is listed as being a forensic psychiatrist. The U.K. authors include psychiatrists, psychologists, lawyers, and sociologists.
