"This is a useful introductory text that should help to extend a basic understanding of the wider world of policy within nursing. Let us hope that a new generation of nurses can be encouraged to look beyond the preoccupations of nursing in order to understand the context within which nursing is practised and to make sure that a nursing perspectie influences policy makers."
