Offenders, Deviants or Patients? provides a practical approach to understanding both the social context and treatment of mentally disordered offenders. Taking into account the current public concern, often heightened by media sensationalism; it addresses issues such as sex and `historic sex offending, `hate' crime, homicide and other acts of serious bodily harm.

This fifth edition is fully updated and incorporates the latest research and reflects recent changes in law, policy and practice, including:

DSM-V criteria

groundbreaking work on neuro-physiological aspects of psychopathy

the Coroners and Justice Act

Using new case examples, Herschel Prins draws on his own expertise and experience to examine the relationship between mental disorders and crime and looks at the ways in which it should be dealt with by the mental health care and criminal justice systems. Offenders, Deviants or Patients? is unique in its multidisciplinary approach and will be invaluable to all those who come into contact with serious offenders or those who study crime and criminal behaviour.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"... Prins himself has crossed boundaries in his career - practitioner, Probation Officer, and academic - the book remains filled with observations from and about music, art, literature and contemporary culture which takes his prose about what some might regard as essentially dry, socio-forensic matters into a whole new realm of academic writing. In other words, Offenders, Deviants or Patients? remains what it has always been - a delight to actually read. This is not something I could say about many academic books." - From the Foreword, Professor David Wilson, Centre for Applied Criminology, Birmingham City University
