Colonial Caring

A History of Colonial and Post-Colonial Nursing

edited by Helen Sweet and Sue Hawkins

Published by Manchester University Press

Nursing History and Humanities MUP

  • Fills a gap in the history of nursing as there are no books currently available which provide an overview of colonial nursing from a European and American perspective
  • Presents colonial caring through overlapping lenses of gender, class and race, making it valuable not just for historians of nursing but for historians of these subjects too
  • Adds to the existing and extensive bibliography on colonial history, which despite its breadth has not to any great extent engaged with the relationship between nursing and colonialism
  • Provides an international perspective by pulling together contributions from authors in seven different countries
