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.

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.
