The American Psychiatric Press has initiated a new format for the Annual Review of Psychiatry. It is now divided into separate monographs, each devoted to a particular topic, rather than compilation in one volume. The five chapters in this volume present current literature and research by highly qualified authors evaluating the factors contributing to the association between mental illness and violent crime. These include axis I and axis II disorders, neurobiological factors, and sociocultural aspects.
