A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title 2014! 2014 winner of the American Association for the History of Nursing’s Mary M. Roberts Award for Exemplary Historical Research and Writing! The Routledge Handbook on the Global History of Nursing brings together leading scholars and scholarship to capture the state of the art and science of nursing history, as a generation of researchers turn to the history of nursing with new paradigms and methodological tools. Inviting readers to consider new understandings of the historical work and worth of nursing in a larger global context, this ground-breaking volume illuminates how research into the history of nursing moves us away from a reductionist focus on diseases and treatments and towards more inclusive ideas about the experiences of illnesses on individuals, families, communities, voluntary organizations, and states at the bedside and across the globe. An extended introduction by the editors provides an overview and analyzes the key themes involved in the transmission of ideas about the care of the sick. Organized into four parts, and addressing nursing around the globe, it covers: New directions in the history of nursing; New methodological approaches; The politics of nursing knowledge; Nursing and its relationship to social practice. Exploring themes of people, practice, politics and places, this cutting edge volume brings together the best of nursing history scholarship, and is a vital reference for all researchers in the field, and is also relevant to those studying on nursing history and health policy courses.

This book comprehensively reviews the characteristics of the body reflected in the skin due to differences in gender.

Evolutionary Rhetoric

Sex, Science, and Free Love in Nineteenth-Century Feminism

Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-USX-NONEX-NONE In Evolutionary Rhetoric, scholar Wendy Hayden provides a comprehensive examination of the relationship between scientific and feminist rhetorics in free-love feminism, studying the movement from its inception in the 1850s to its dark turn toward eugenics in the early 1900s. Hayden organizes her provocative study by scientific discipline—evolution, physiology, bacteriology, embryology, and heredity. Each chapter explores how free-love feminists adopted the evidence of that discipline in their arguments for increased sex education, women’s sexual rights, reproductive freedom, and the abolition of a marriage system that repressed the rights and the sexuality of women. Hayden takes our conventional understanding of the relationship between nineteenth-century feminism and science and expands it. The author provides examples of the powerful words of free-love feminists to show exactly how these exceptional women used science as a rhetorical platform to promote feminist, and often radical, social reforms. Considering why the free-love movement has not yet been studied, Hayden also discusses how the recovery of this movement may impact larger goals in the recovery of women’s rhetoric. This important and timely study of a long-forgotten movement adds to our understanding of the complexities of the history of feminism.

Broken Limbs, Broken Lives

Ethnography of a Hospital Ward in Bangladesh

Author: Shahaduz Zaman

Publisher: Aksant Academic Pub

ISBN: N.A

Category: Health & Fitness

Shahaduz Zaman carried out anthropological fieldwork in an orthopedic ward in a large government teaching hospital of Bangladesh. The research shows that in contrast to the assumed universalism in biomedicine, biomedical practice is in fact a product of particular social conditions, and the hospital in which it takes place reflects the features of the society in which it is embedded. A shocking and humorous study, this work shows how medical practice takes shape in an under-staffed, under-resourced and under-financed hospital in a low-income country characterized by daily physical and structural violence. Shahaduz Zaman is a medical doctor, medical anthropologist, and literary writer.
