Florence Nightingale on women, medicine, midwifery and prostitution by Florence Nightingale ( )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,106 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 in childbirth ('Introductory Notes on Lying-in Institutions'), her opposition to the regulation of prostitution through the Contagious Diseases Acts (attempts to stop the legislation and otherwise to facilitate the voluntary treatment of syphilitic prostitutes), her views on gender roles, marriage and measures for 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. Correspondents include old family friends, royal and notable personages, nuns and colleagues in various causes. Most of this material has not been published before and some letters wil 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
Florence Nightingale at first hand by Lynn McDonald ( )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,095 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 is a book which 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 Nigh
Florence Nightingale an introduction to her life and family by Florence Nightingale ( )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 1,057 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
Florence Nightingale on public health care by Florence Nightingale ( )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Florence Nightingale on society and politics, philosophy, science, education and literature by Florence Nightingale ( )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 974 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 on health in India by Florence Nightingale ( )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Florence Nightingale on social change in India by Florence Nightingale ( )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Social Change in India shows the shift of focus that occurred during Florence Nightingale's more than forty years of work on public health in India. While the focus in the preceding volume, Health in India, was top-down reform, notably in the Royal Commission on the Sanitary State of the Army in India, this book documents concrete proposals for self-government, especially at the municipal level, and the encouragement of leading Indian nationals themselves. Famine and related epidemics continue to be issues, demonstrating the need for public works like irrigation and for greater self-help meas
Florence Nightingale the Nightingale School by Florence Nightingale ( )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Florence Nightingale is famous as a nurse, her lifetime's writing on nursing 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. Nightingale's work on nursing is now available to scholars and general readers alike through the publication of volumes 12 and 13 in the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale. Volume 12, The Nightingale School, relates the founding of her school at St Thomas' Hospital and her guidance of its teaching for the rest of her life. Volume 13, Extending
Florence Nightingale extending nursing by Florence Nightingale ( )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 792 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 Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, Volume 14 by Lynn McDonald ( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 725 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
The sociology of law and order by Lynn McDonald ( Book )
14 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Women theorists on society and politics ( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 552 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
Social class and delinquency by Lynn McDonald ( Book )
11 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Florence Nightingale on wars and the War Office by Florence Nightingale ( )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Volume 15 of the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, Wars and the War Office , picks up on the previous volume's recounting of Nightingale's famous work during the Crimean War and the comprehensive analysis she did on its high death rates. This volume moves on to the implementation of the recommendations that emerged from that research and to her work to reduce deaths in the next wars, beginning with the American Civil War. Nightingale's writings describe the creation of the Army Medical School, the vast improvements made in the statistical tracking of disease, and new measures for soldiers' welfare. Her role in the formulation of the first Geneva Convention in 1864 is related, along with her concern that voluntary relief efforts through the Red Cross not make war "cheap." Nightingale was decorated by both sides for her work in the Franco-Prussian War. While much of her work concerned the mundane sending out of supplies, we see also in her writing her emerging interest in militarism as the cause of war. Her opposition to the Afghan War (of her time) and her work to provide nursing for the Egyptian campaigns, the Zulu War, and the start of the Boer War are also included
