The early origins of the social sciences by Lynn McDonald( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that the beginnings of the social sciences extend much further back than is generally realized, Lynn McDonald traces the methodological foundations, research techniques, and basic concepts of the social sciences from their earliest origins to the beginning of this century. This thorough investigation enables her to provide empirical refutation of recent radical, feminist, and environmentalist critiques that assert that the social sciences inevitably support the power relations of the status quo, are antithetical to the interests of women, and are inherently linked to the domination and destruction of nature

Florence Nightingale at first hand by Lynn McDonald( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florence Nightingale is one of the most famous figures in modern history. Yet much of what we know of her emanates from unreliable second-hand accounts and from a misreading of the primary sources. Florence Nightingale at First Hand, by Lynn McDonald, editor of Nightingale's Collected Works and the world's foremost Nightingale authority, aims to put this right. This book reports what Florence Nightingale said and did, based on her writing, of which a massive amount survives, scattered in over two hundred archives throughout the world. Published to commemorate the centenary of Nightingale's death, McDonald's study presents a Florence Nightingale for the twenty-first century, as an author of great style and wit, a systems thinker and pioneering public health reformer--the heroine and nurse were only the start.--Publisher description

Women theorists on society and politics by Lynn McDonald( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women Theorists on Society and Politics brings together scarce, previously unpublished and newly translated excerpts from works by such women theorists as Emilie du Chatelet, Germaine de Stael, Catharine Macaulay, Mary Wollstonecraft, Flora Tristan, Harriet Martineau, Florence Nightingale, Beatrice Webb and Jane Addams. It focuses on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century writers, but also includes some selections from as early as the Renaissance and late seventeenth century. Introductions to the material, biographical background and secondary sources enhance this collection. Women Theorists on Society and Politics provides important theory on standard topics and a balance to the anthologies of feminist writing now more commonly available
Florence Nightingale on women, medicine, midwifery and prostitution by Florence Nightingale( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Volume 8: Florence Nightingale on Women, Medicine, Midwifery and Prostitution makes available a great range of Florence Nightingale's work on women: her pioneering study of maternal mortality post childbirth, her opposition to the regulation of prostitution through the Contagious Diseases Acts, her views on gender roles, marriage and income security for women and excerpts from her draft (abandoned) novel. There is correspondence with women friends and colleagues from childhood to old age, on a vast range of subjects. Most of this material has not been published before, and some letters will be new even to Nightingale scholars. Altogether, a very different view of Nightingale emerges from what normally appears in biographies and other secondary sources. This material will enable a new assessment of her feminism, her relations with women and her contribution to improving the status of women of her time. It will be of interest to a broad range of historians, social scientists and public health experts."--Jacket
Florence Nightingale : an introduction to her life and family by Florence Nightingale( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florence Nightingale: An Introduction to Her Life and Family introduces the Collected Works by giving an overview of Nightingale's life and the faith that guided it and by outlining the main social reform concerns on which she worked from her 'call to service' at age sixteen to old age. This volume reports correspondence (selected from the thousands of surviving letters) with her mother, father and sister and a wide extended family. There is material on Nightingale's 'domestic arrangements', from recipes, cat care and relations with servants to her contributions to charities, church and social reform causes. Much new and original material comes to light, and a remarkably different portrait of Nightingale, one with a more nuanced view of her family relationships, emerges

Nightingale's recommendations for a revision of the Bible for schoolchildren and excerpts from her devotional reading are given."--Jacket

12 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florence Nightingale on Society and Politics, Philosophy, Science, Education and Literature, Volume 5 in the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, is the main source of Nightingale's work on the methodology of social science and her views on social reform. Here we see how she took her "call to service" into practice: by first learning how the laws of God's world operate, one can then determine how to intervene for good. There is material on medical statistics, the census, pauperism and Poor Law reform, the need for income security measures and better housing, on crime, gender and the famil

Florence Nightingale : extending nursing by Florence Nightingale( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Florence Nightingale is famous as a nurse, her lifetime's writing on nursing and to nurses is scarcely known in the profession. Nursing professors tend to "look to the future, not to the past," and often ignore her or rely on faulty secondary sources. Volume 12 related the founding of her school at St Thomas' Hospital and her guidance of its teaching for the rest of her life. Volume 13, Extending Nursing, relates the introduction of professional training and standards outside St Thomas', beginning with London hospitals and others in Britain, followed by hospitals in Europe, America

Florence Nightingale : the Nightingale School by Florence Nightingale( Book )

Although Florence Nightingale is famous as a nurse, her lifetime's writing on nursing is scarcely known in the profession.

Florence Nightingale and hospital reform by Florence Nightingale( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florence Nightingale began working on hospital reform even before she founded her famous school of nursing; hospitals were dangerous places for nurses as well as patients, and they urgently needed fundamental reform. She continued to work on safer hospital design, location, and materials to the end of her working life, advising on plans for children's, general, military, and convalescent hospitals and workhouse infirmaries. Florence Nightingale and Hospital Reform, the final volume in the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, includes her influential Notes on Hospitals, with its much-quoted musing on the need of a Hippocratic oath for hospitals--namely, that first they should do the sick no harm. Nightingale's anonymous articles on hospital design are printed here also, as are later encyclopedia entries on hospitals. Correspondence with architects, engineers, doctors, philanthropists, local notables, and politicians is included. The results of these letters, some with detailed critiques of hospital plans, can be seen initially in the great British examples of the new "pavilion" design--at St. Thomas', London (a civil hospital), at the Herbert Hospital (military), and later at many hospitals throughout the UK and internationally. Nightingale's insistence on keeping good statistics to track rates of mortality and hospital stays, and on using them to compare hospitals, can be seen as good advice for today, given the new versions of "hospital-acquired infections" she combatted
Florence Nightingale Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, Volume 14 by Lynn McDonald( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florence Nightingale is famous as the "lady with the lamp" in the Crimean War, 1854-56. There is a massive amount of literature on this work, but, as editor Lynn McDonald shows, it is often erroneous, and films and press reporting on it have been even less accurate. The Crimean War reports on Nightingale's correspondence from the war hospitals and on the staggering amount of work she did post-war to ensure that the appalling death rate from disease (higher than that from bullets) did not recur. This volume contains much on Nightingale's efforts to achieve real reforms
