In this book, it is argued that serious personality disorders are pre-psychotic conditions. Persons suffering from such conditions may, under inner or outer stress, lapse into transient psychotic behavior during which they offend, while later they can integrate into their previous non-psychotic mental state. The author argues that, due to the cause of this condition, and when supporting evidence is available, all such offenders should be given the opportunity to enter a plea of non-criminal responsibility, or at least of diminished criminal responsibility, as was possible prior to the United States' 1984 Federal Insanity Plea Act. The author's position is supported by case studies, examples of landmark legal cases, and a presentation of psychiatric and legal literature.
