    Nursing and Social Change is essential reading for nurses who wish to understand how their profession had developed from its earliest beginnings to the present day. Now in its third edition the book has been completely revised to take into account the challenges facing nurses. Ten new chapters include contributions from senior members of the nursing profession who have been closely involved in the most recent health service reorganisation and the radical changes to nurse education.
