This book explores, for the first time in an edited collection, the intersection of three key research areas - women, madness and the law - and advances the debates on how law and the 'psy' sciences play a critical role in regulating and controlling women's lives.


'The thirteen chapters are well presented and the various authors accounts provide some challenging, thought-provoking and on occasion disturbing reflections of the various issues that are manifest within the areas of research.' - The Cambrian Law Review 2006
