Summary

This is the only collection of its kind to offer an inside view of life and work in contemporary nursing homes with the purpose of developing a theory of the culture of long term care. The anthropological research in nursing homes presented here produces a seldom seen "native view" of patients, staff, and the day-to-day workings of American nursing homes.
