'This book is a powerful collection of works, edited by two of the most insightful and radical thinkers in nursing. Rudge and Holmes are a truly formidable duo and they have brought together authors whose works go to fundamental questions for nursing in the 21st century. These chapters challenge the many normative and comforting concepts in which nursing has taken refuge. These authors put new questions on nursing's agenda. Bravo.' Jocalyn Lawler, The University of Sydney, Australia 'From mucous membranes to mutilation, disgust to defilement, horror to honour these are the stock in trade of Kristeva in the clinic. All and more are vividly portrayed in this compelling collection. This volume provides a cornucopia of concepts and applies these in intriguing and innovative ways to nursing practice. To be read with relish.' Anne Marie Rafferty, King's College, London, UK 'Without doubt a compelling read... Rudge and Holmes have produced a well-crafted, informative, highly evocative (and often provocative) text. Each chapter follows a comfortingly similar format, beginning with an introduction that leads to an explicit statement about the aim of the chapter. This careful crafting has ensured consistency across chapters and an overall coherence of the book... there is much to be learned from this book. Collectively, the contributors articulate and make visible the abject. They illuminate considerable potential to rethink ways that bodies are viewed in contemporary health care... I was so absorbed by this book. Rarely have I found a healthcare text so compelling. This is a highly recommended read.' Nursing Philosophy
