Was the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer an evil man responsible for his murders? Or was he an innocent victim of a psychiatric illness?

"Evil or Ill?" is an ideal companion to the American rage of TV talk shows, true crime shows and Court TV--where law and crime meet with psychology. Lawrie Reznek explores the concept of an excuse and explains why our moral and legal systems contain the insanity defense. Reznek presents the intricate nature of the Jeffrey Dahmer insanity defense, and weaves examples of other mainstream court cases within a philosophical and psychiatric context.
