Dr. Horton has had many years experience in teaching the sociology course for nursing students. He is the senior co-author of other college level texts in the field and has designed this new book with a view to presenting a solid treatment of the principles of sociology rather than a superficial discussion of principles, social problems, and nursing application which is common to many texts for the course in nursing education. He deals with the nursing application in the review questions at the end of each chapter which have been designed to require students to apply the principles to nursing practice. Students thus learn not only the basic principles of sociology required of college freshman for the course but develop the ability to apply these principles to their specialized area of interest. * The material presented is up-to-date throughout; the text is designed for the two credit hour course, and it is written in a mature and highly readable style. It is recommended for nursing programs where a broader educational background for nurses is encouraged through affiliation with college and university programs. There is an accompanying teacher's guide.
