Description:
Understanding the terrain of mental incapacity in criminal law is notoriously difficult; it involves tracing overlapping and interlocking legal doctrines, current and past practices including those of evidence and proof, and also medical and social understanding of mental order and incapacity. This book provides a close study of mental incapacity defences, analysing their development through historical cases to the modern era.
