Abstract: Barbara Callaway’s new biography Hildegard Peplau: Psychiatric Nurse of the Century is a well-written important contribution to nursing. The book chronicles the life of Hildegard Peplau, the “mother of psychiatric nursing,” and concomitantly educates the reader about nursing history and nursing politics. The author’s goals were achieved if her goals were to enlighten, educate, and stimulate.
