520    "The Sino-Japanese War (1937-45) had a devastating impact 
       on China's civilian population.  Braving bandits, disease,
       and dangerous roads, the China Convoy--a Quaker-sponsored 
       humanitarian unit - delivered medical supplies and 
       provided famine and medical relief in the unoccupied 
       territory of "Free China" and later to both sides in the 
       ensuing civil war.  China Gadabouts examines the contested
       roles played by Western and Chinese nurses in the Convoy's
       humanitarian efforts from 1941 to 1951.  In so doing, it 
       re-examines the quandaries of Quaker's' purportedly 
       apolitical global engagement that remain salient for 
       contemporary humanitarians.  Susan Armstrong-Reid explores
       how this work gave meaning to the women's lives and how 
       they attempted to carve out personal and professional 
       space despite a chaotic, unfamiliar, and occasionally 
       hostile environment.  China Gadabouts illuminated the 
       ethical dilemmas, professional challenges, and 
       opportunities presented by humanitarian nursing with a 
       Western-base relief organization, while acknowledging its 
       contentious imperial role.  In doing so, it spotlights an 
       understudied area of global nursing - its role with INGOs,
       now more active than ever in global health care"--
