"By combining narratives of African American women and white men and analyzing the Army Nurse Corps' policies regarding both race and gender, Threat links together gender and racial equality to provide a new framework in which to understand the 1960s civil rights movement... Threat's arguments make Nursing Civil Rights an important work in understanding the gender and racial structure of the Army Nurse Corps in the 1960s and 1970s."--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
"This book links nurses' struggles to broader drives for racial and gender justice. Highly recommended."--Choice
"A welcome amendment to the history of nursing in the United States. . . . Threat's examination of nursing's organizational evolution yields new insights about the racial politics of alliance and division."--Women's Review of Books
"Charissa J. Threat offers an original way to view the struggles of professional black women and white men in nursing...This book is more than a history of two groups struggling for acceptance in the cultures and politics of professional nursing and the military. Threat's discussion about the complexities surrounding the concept of equality allows the reader to consider larger societal issues about inclusion."--American Historical Review
"Nursing Civil Rights illuminates thoroughly the issues of racial and gender inclusion in the US military." --The Journal of African American History
