Nursing, the Finest Art : An Illustrated History


Copyright American Library Association, used with permission.

This third edition is a welcome update to the previous ones (2nd, 1996; 1st, 1985). It has a decidedly more international perspective, concluding with a well-researched unit in which Donahue (emer., Univ. of Iowa) challenges all nurses to take a global view of health care. The perspective, however, remains that of a nurse in the United States. This orientation is most noticeable in the sections on the world wars. The writing is clear and accessible, the time lines summarize vast amounts of information, and the organization allows readers to focus on particular areas of interest. The generous use of illustrations richly supports the author's premise that nursing throughout the centuries has been both a science and an art. This book is a celebration of nursing and its history. Readers should not expect an examination of the profession's shortcomings or ethical failings. With that understanding, readers of previous editions and those with an interest in the history of health care will do well to add this beautiful edition to their libraries. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates, two-year technical program students, professionals, and general readers. M. D. Lagerwey Western Michigan University
