Psychopathic Disorders and their Assessment considers the diverse views and significant developments in understanding psychopathic disorders. This book is composed of 12 chapters, and begins with a description of the primary and negative features of the condition. The subsequent chapters are concerned with the methods of disposal of a psychopath under English law, the safeguards available both to the individual and to society within and without the Mental Health Act, and the extent to which this disposal mechanism was used. These topics are followed by discussions on the causation of psychopathic disorder; the electroencephalographic and psychological techniques for the disorder evaluation; and various methods of patient care. The last chapters consider the law and practice relating to psychopathic disorder and British facilities for the treatment of psychopaths. This book is of value to psychologists and psychiatrists.11 in Handbook of Abnormal Psychology, Ed. H. J. Eysenck, London, Pitman. ... Press. MURRAY, H. A.
