“All pathological liars have a purpose, i.e., to decorate their own person, to tell something interesting, and an ego motive is always present. They lie about something they wish to possess.”

This historic and groundbreaking work describes and analyzes several cases of pathological behavior. The importance of this book comes not only from the individual cases, but also from the analysis which is mired in what we now know to be erroneous thinking about mental illness, sexuality, gender, and race of its time.

“As practically nothing up to the present has been written on the subject in English, this book is a very welcome contribution to psychiatric literature. Throughout, the authors assume a very conservative and careful attitude in their discussions and conclusions. May the conscientious author of ‘The Individual Delinquent’ – which must be regarded as a truly epoch-making work in criminology – continue to scatter broadcast the germs of his rich experience with the juvenile delinquent.” -Meyer Solomon, The Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Volume 11, 1916
