Nightingale is one of history's most enigmatic & controversial figures, a polymath whose combination of boundless energy & chronic illness has confounded biographers. The author debunks the latest conventional wisdom - based on a misreading of technical literature - that a chronic infection caused her to be depressed. Such theories of mental aberration marginalise Nightingale & conveniently avoid controversial analysis of her achievements, which go completely against the grain of history as it is taught. 160pp P/B
