In this text, the editors bring together work by scholars who have studied mental disorder and work disability from the fields of sociology, psychology, psychiatry, law, and economics. The contributions build upon one another to create an integrated account of the policy issues at stake when law deals with the rights of mentally disordered citizens to work when they are able to, and to receive benefits when they are not.;This book should be of interest to scholars in law and the mental health professions, and to policy makers and the administrators of disability programs.
