Florence Nightingale at First Hand
Florence Nightingale at First Hand

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 mid-reading 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 that 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.

Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not
Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not

“My heart always sinks within me when I hear the good housewife, of every class, say ‘I assure you the bed is well slept in: and I can only hope it is not true. What? Is the bed already saturated with somebody else’s damp before my patient comes to exhale in it his own damp? Has it not had a single chance to be aired? No, not one. ‘It has been slept in every night.’”

From the best know work of Florence Nightingale, the originator and founder of modern nursing, comes a collection of notes that 0ayed an important part of the much needed revolution in the field of nursing. For the first time it was brought to the attention of those caring for the sick that their responsibilities covered not only the administration of medicines and the application of poultices, but the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet and the proper selection and administration of diet. Miss Nightingale is outspoken on these subjects as well as on other factors that she considers essential to good nursing. But, whatever her topic, her main concern and attention is always on the patient and his needs.

Crimea
Crimea

by Orlando Figes

The Crimean War one of the fiercest battles in Russia’s history, killing nearly a million men and completely redrawing the map of Europe. Pitting the Tsar’s empire against an alliance of Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire, it was the first conflict to use photography, the telegraph and newspapers; a war over territory, from the Balkans to the Persian Gulf; a war of religion, driven by a fervent, populist belief by the Tsar and his ministers that it was Russia’s task to rule all Orthodox Christians and control the Holy Land; it was the original ‘total war’.

Orlando Figes’ vivid new book reinterprets this extraordinary conflict. Bringing to life ordinary soldiers in snow-filled trenches, surgeons on the battlefield and the haunted, fanatical figure of Tsar Nicholas himself, Crimea tells the human story of a tragic war.
