Jacques Vergès, born 5 March 1925 in Ubon Ratchathani, Siam (now called Thailand), is a French lawyer who has earned fame continually since the 1950s, first as an anticolonialist communist figure and then for defending a long string of infamous clients from anticolonialist Algerian militant Djamila Bouhired (his future wife) in 1957-1962 to former Khmer Rouge head of state Khieu Samphan (2008).

In World War I, they spoke of shell shock. By World War II, the term was battle fatigue. Modern understanding of trauma psychology has evolved to give the concept a non-military name: posttraumatic stress disorder. As such, it has been at the heart of civil and criminal cases from workers' compensation to murder.PTSD and Forensic Psychology brings its topic into real-world focus by examining posttraumatic stress as a clinical entity and taking readers through the evaluation process for court cases involving the PTSD syndrome. This timely reference differentiates between PTSD and disorders that may be mistaken for it, and demonstrates its legal application in seeking civil damages and mounting a criminal defense. An evidence-based framework for conducting a trial-worthy evaluation and guidelines for establishing strong cases and refuting dubious ones further illustrate the protocols and challenges surrounding the status of PTSD in legal settings. For maximum usefulness, the book offers courtroom advice for expert witnesses as well as "practice points" at the end of each chapter. Featured topics include:History of the PTSD concept and its relation to the law.PTSD as syndrome: symptoms, diagnosis, treatment.PTSD and other traumatic disability syndromes.PTSD in the civil litigation and criminal justice systems.PTSD as an insanity defense and in claims of diminished capacity.PTSD cases: evaluation, interpretation, testimony. This thorough yet concise analysis makes PTSD and Forensic Psychology the ideal training tool for beginning mental health expert witnesses, as well as a concise practical review and reference source for seasoned forensic psychologists. It will also serve as a useful practice and teaching guide for attorneys, medical rehabilitation professionals, military personnel, psychotherapists, researchers, and educators in the fields of clinical and forensic psychology, criminology, traumatic stress studies, and mental health law.
The demise of the era of the imperial chief executive has been accompanied by a resurgence in financial regulation. High-level criminal prosecutions, proactive enforcement strategies and a strengthened resolve to police deficiencies have made compliance an imperative. Have the reforms introduced in the United States done enough to address what President Bush has termed 'America's greatest need: higher ethical standards - standards enforced by strict laws and upheld by responsible business leaders'? Given the global importance of US capital markets, what are the global implications of the triangulated American legislative, legal and regulatory response. How to govern the corporation and the markets in which they operate have become public and corporate priorities with a salience emanating far beyond the narrow confines of the business community. Following three years of scandal, the initial quiescence by business has dissipated. The target is the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act, or Sarbanes-Oxley, the centre-piece of the reform agenda.
