Angels in Africa: A Memoir of Nursing with the Colonial Sevice

Front Cover
I. B. Tauris, Jun 15, 1993 - History - 200 pages
This account of nursing in Africa - in Kenya, Zanzibar, the Seychelles and Northern Nigeria, reflects the author's experience of nursing practice and administration. It explains the problems presented by the African climate and lack of supplies, and the means by which nursing standards were maintained. The book reveals a life and work absorbed by practical tasks in which imperial rhetoric and condescension had no part.
