By Reason of Insanity Lawrence Zelic Freedman read online review & book description:

Although the McNaughtan rules have a history of over one hundred years in the American judicial system, psychiatric expert testimony in capital cases has brought little satisfaction to either the lawyer or the psychiatrist. These two professional groups, moreover, have not arrived at a common basis for criticism so the resulting discussions have been nebulous with little interchange in communication. As might be expected, the voluminous record of the contentions between them usually fails to disclose a realistic examination into the nature of the problem. However, a recent and rapidly developing knowledge of mental life now challenges traditional concepts and brings the central issue of responsibility and mental illness into sharper relief.
