“…patient/doctor relations were forever changed by Inglis’s efforts”

Brian Inglis

Brian Inglis (1916-1993) was neither the first nor only author to question blind obedience to doctors. Nonetheless, his controversial classic “Fringe Medicine” (1964, Faber and Faber) ushered in the modern era of patient advocacy, laying the foundations for today’s wellness movement. The author’s traversal of this field laid out options for desperate patients ill-served by conventional therapies and determined to recapture their health. How well has Inglis’s campaign withstood the test of time?
Inglis’s warnings of antibiotic resistance are remarkably prescient. In other areas he may have gone too far (the “black box,” used in the technique of radiesthesia, has faded from view). Self-censorship was never Brian’s forte, and his polemics unleashed a counter-revolution with the rise of the global skeptical movement in the 1970s.
The fact remains that patient/doctor relations were forever changed by Inglis’s efforts. Join us at interlitq.org as Brian’s son Neil Langdon Inglis reviews “Fringe Medicine,” soon to be re-released by Endeavour Media in an e-book edition.

March 2018: Interlitq to publish Neil Langdon Inglis’s review (“Revolutionary or traitor?”) of his father’s biography of Roger Casement

Hanged for treason in the depths of WWI, Roger Casement (1864-1916) remains a heroic figure for many in his home country of Ireland. When Irish author Brian Inglis turned his attention to the enigmatic revolutionary executed in the year of Inglis’s birth, a sympathetic treatment of the subject seemed likely. And yet, it bears witness to Inglis’s judicious objectivity that his resulting biography of Casement yielded no whitewash, but a measured assessment of a man of ideals and fatal flaws. With the release of a new Kindle edition by Endeavour Media, a new generation of readers can now savor Inglis’s account of Casement’s life, a true classic of the genre (first published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1973). In March 2018, Brian’s son Neil Langdon Inglis (Interlitq‘s U.S. General Editor) will review his father’s biography in his article “Revolutionary or traitor?”.
