Synopsis

How does our legal and mental health system handle the mentally disordered? In this book, George C. Klein presents a revealing survey that explores the system of processing prisoners and patients from arrest to admissions to court. In an investigation spanning over 30-years, Klein examines and evaluates the intersection of law, mental health, and social control.
