The issue of power is central in the analysis of the development and contemporary structures of nursing, the remedial therapies and social work. Both the idea of caring and the concept of professionalism are integral to the problems of power. Using material from the UK and the USA, this book examines the growth of these professions, and asks a critical perspective of their present organisation, highlighting race, gender and relationships with service users as central to such an analysis 'This is a fascinating book which will be of interest to everyone who has devoted thought to the nature of professional intervention in health care'. Jennifer Creek, British Journal of Occupational Therapy
