Abstract

Book Reviews 257 oriented, doting on her mother, father, and sister, and on the children of her relatives. Baly effectively examines these connadictions heen rhe public and private Nighwe in this brief book, focusing on such topics as a Vic- torian Wy, the call, (to nursing), wars and armies, social policy, hospitals and hospital administration, women, the nature of nursing, nursing educa- tion, and nursing management. The book is intended for a general au- dience, although sources are provided for further research. I would highly recommend it as a brief introduction to the complexities of Nightingale's Me and of early nursing. I would hope the book might even hd its way into undergraduate issues courses or, where they exist, into nursing history courses, introducing students to a more realistic view-of our roots. VRRN L.
