This is designed as a textbook for short courses in nursing history (fifteen hours or less). It is well organized, clearly and interestingly presented and well illustrated. It begins with the story of nursing efforts among primitive peoples and includes material as recent as the nursing records of the current war. A general historical chronology and a chronology of nursing history are given. Review questions are presented at the end of the book, not chapter by chapter. There is an excellent index.
