Book News A guide and course text for clinical nurses who are either in or thinking of entering the specialty, answering a dearth of purely practical texts in Britain and the US to complement the more theoretical texts that follow a more medical model. The arrangement is by modality: chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, general surgery, and radiotherapy. Each section begins with a review of the principles or background, discusses patient care during various stages and procedures, and considers both short-term and long-term effects. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
