Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Virginia B. Byers, PhD, RN (SUNY Health Sciences Center at Syracuse)
Description: A majority of chapters in this book represent scholarly papers presented at the 16th Caring Research Conference. It is an original and unique collection of papers focused on the need to consider the values that influence attitudes, views, and actions in relation to power, politics, and public policy.
Purpose: The purpose is to reinforce the commitment to caring that can become the vantage point for understanding power, politics, and public policy. This philosophy can foster the advancement of the knowledge of human care and caring within the discipline of nursing and thus serve as a guide for involvement of professional nurses in activities related to power, politics, and public policy.
Audience: This book makes available to all nurses scholarly papers presented at a conference co-sponsored by the International Association for Human Caring, Inc. The purpose of this organization is "to serve as a forum for all nurses, worldwide, who are interested in the advancement of the knowledge of human care and caring within the discipline of nursing." This book will have most appeal to nurse educators, graduate students, and graduate-prepared nursing professionals in the enhancement of curriculum, student, and faculty development.
Features: Well-chosen illustrations enhance the presentation of ideas and research data. Current and relevant reference lists accompany each chapter. The table of contents flows logically through three major sections. An excellent introduction by Tim Porter O'Grady sets the tone for the level of thought and reflection needed to move beyond accustomed ways of thinking and doing. The book is attractive in cover and size. Each scholarly paper stimulates reflective thought, and recommendations for further research are identified.
Assessment: This book is a valuable contribution to the nursing literature on human caring. Its philosophical nature challenges professional nurses to find new ways to influence the environment in which nursing is practiced.
