First World War Nursing : New Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Alison S. (University of Leeds, UK) Fell, Christine E. (University of Manchester, UK) Hallett
Part of the Routledge Studies in Modern History series
This book brings together a collection of works by scholars who have produced some of the most innovative and influential work on the topic of First World War nursing in the last ten years.
The contributors employ an interdisciplinary collaborative approach that takes into account multiple facets of Allied wartime nursing: historical contexts (history of the profession, recruitment, teaching, different national socio-political contexts), popular cultural stereotypes (in propaganda, popular culture) and longstanding gender norms (woman-as-nurturer).
They draw on a wide range of hitherto neglected historical sources, including diaries, novels, letters and material culture.
The result is a fully-rounded new study of nurses' unique and compelling perspectives on the unprecedented experiences of the First World War.
