COLLIE, SIR JOHN. - Fraud in Medico-Legal Practice.

London, Arnold 1932. Octavo publisher's cloth (marked and mild signs of use); xii,276pp, illustrations through the text. ¶ "This work deals with a dark side of human nature, and does not admit of the display of that sympathy which I trust all genuine cases receive". This is based on his earlier work 'Malingering', a much pithier title, and focuses on working (rather than military) malingerers whom Collie investigated. No friend of the unions or the Compensation Act ('there are no malingerers in countries where there is no Workmen's Compensation Act. In China, for instance, ... his family and his neighbours come to his aid ... and I am told that this arrangement works admirably') Collie was the medical officer or examiner to a number of boards, councils and insurance companies. There are a satisfying number of case studies ranging from the ever popular back pains and hernias to feigned insanity, alleged incontinence and self inflicted injuries.
