This compendium brings together the major legal precedents and legal commentaries that have defined the role of mental illness in criminal trials throughout U.S history. The set will consider, among other issues, the evolution of the Supreme Court's position on the insanity defense and mental retardation, how these affect one's competency to stand trial or be executed, and how these affect culpability and punishment. This collection reprints in facsimile the most influential scholarship published in this subject area. The thematically-organized volumes are available individually or as a set.
