Marianne Bankert has written both a history of the nurse anesthetist and of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. The book emphasizes the struggle that the nurse anesthetists had in the turf wars not only with the physicians but with organized nursing. The result is a fascinating study of the growth of a profession and its struggles to survive.
