    "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." Peter Calley RN, MSc, PhD, Lecturer University of Manchester, Nurse Education Today, 2000 No 20, January 2000
