Explores why forensic psychiatry services are not serving the multi-ethnic societies of Britain and the United States as they should. Discusses the concepts, theories and ideologies upon which forensic psychiatry is founded and explains why current problems are in part the result of a historic linking of race, schizophrenia and criminality in the minds of Western Europeans. Presents a survey of current clinical research into issues of race and forensic psychiatry and argues that the apparent contradictions in research findings and inquiry reports impact negatively on clinical practice. Also takes a detailed look at recent social policy on mental health, race and criminal justice and the way in which this influences and is influenced by public attitudes and pressures.
