- "Madness raises intriguing―and complex―criminological questions, not least the famous trio of ‘triability, responsibility, and punishability’. Furthermore, law-enforcement agencies frequently face a choice between invoking the criminal law or using mental-health remedies. And if and when sentences are passed, not all mentally disordered offenders receive treatment. That prompts a number of additional questions, such as: how effective are institutions to which these offenders are sent? And: do mentally disordered offenders differ qualitatively from the criminal population as a whole? As serious research on and around madness and crime continues to flourish, this new four-volume collection from Routledge’s Critical Concepts in Criminology series addresses these and other questions."-- Provided by publisher.
