Abstract :

The books 'Opposing Ambitions, Gender, and Identity in an Alternative Organization,' 'Beyond Caring, Hospitals, Nurses and the Social Organization of Ethics,' and 'Nursing Wounds, Nurse Practitioners/Doctors/Women Patients/ and the Negotiation of Meaning' provide substantial ethnographic information on health, medicine, illness and various healing practices. These books emphasize the role of ethnography in the evolution of the modern medical practices.
