Reviews

'This thought-provoking book is a sophisticated compilation of research and provides excellent examples of ethnographic designs. It would be ideal as a text in academic programmes for professionals to develop the awareness of health care as a profoundly interdisciplinary activity.' - Lela M. Holden, Journal of Advanced Nursing
