Editorial Reviews


"International Human rights and Mental Disability Law: When the Silenced Are Heard is the definitive text on the analysis of international law, treaties, protocols, covenants, and conventions regarding mental disability issues. Although a treasure to foreign and international teachers and practitioners, Professor Perlin's book also focuses on areas-- such as sanism and pretextuality-- that may provide some insight for domestic criminal defense and mental health lawyers... I strongly recommend this book to anyone practicing criminal law or working with mental health issues. Professor Perlin wrote it for the international lawyer audience, but he has let some light shine through for all of us." -- Robert M. Sanger, Vice President of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, The Champion

"While the author has written extensively in the past on domestic issues in the US, he has broadened his analytical lens to focus on the current relationship between international human rights law and mental disability law. Perlin thoroughly reviews international human rights law and evaluates mental disability legal doctrine in a comparative law context. He moves on to define the issues that must be addressed in order to safeguard the human rights of the mentally disabled on an international scale, namely the "lack of comprehensive legislation, lack of independent counsel, inadequate care, lack of community programming, and inhumane forensic systems." Perlin's social, political, and legal analysis of rightsbased international mental disability law and its applications addresses the gap in the protection of the human rights of the mentally disabled around the globe." -- Health and Human Rights
