Dr. Robert Sadoff's The Evolution of Forensic Psychiatry is extraordinarily unique in that it is not intended to be a textbook or a guide to forensic psychiatry. Instead, this book is a fascinating mix of historical beginnings, current developments, representative subspecialties of psychiatry, and several allied disciplines and their impact on forensic psychiatry. Furthermore, it also includes neuroscientific research and how it translates to civic and criminal case work. Judges, attorneys, law professors and a police scientist all weigh in on the influence of the interdisciplinary research these forensic scientists have had on the justice system. Featuring case examples and research conducted by the professionals who have had the greatest influence on the growth of the field of forensic psychiatry, they lead the discussion on the various aspects and issues of the discipline's impact on the criminal justice system.

MEDIA REVIEWS
First class. . . This is a book that will give new trainees and experienced practitioners alike valuable insights into the development and progress of U.S. forensic psychiatry. * Dr. Alec Buchanan, Associate Professor, Yale University Medical School, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61, No. 11 (March 2016) *
This book is unique in its structure and purpose when compared to other forensic titles. It provides insight into the beginning of the subspecialty from some of the people who were there when practitioners in the field were first getting organized and deciding on a vision for the future. * Steven T. Herron, MD (Assurance Health and Wellness), Doody's Reviews *
