Expanded and improved, this second edition of the American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry is a gem that should be read and frequently referred to by any clinician with an interest or practice involving forensic psychiatry. The first edition was published only 5 years ago, but chapters have been updated and a number of new ones have been added, which substantially enhances the value of this book.

Divided into 4 parts, 23 chapters, a glossary of legal terms, and subject and legal case indexes, the book runs 702 pages in length.
