Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"No historian in the past twenty years has made a more significant contribution to the history of family and gender than Leonore Davidoff. The two well-known essays on domestic service in Victorian England, reprinted here, show this approach at its most sophisticated and regarding, but there is much else in this rich volume, notably Davidoff's more recent reflections on feminist history." History Today

"[A] fine collection ... [which] retain[s] a freshness and originality. This collection brings together some of the most influential essays in feminist history. There is little scope in this review to do justice to the depth and richness of this excellent collection. Her mastery of her subject and material, the detailed evidence she brings to bear, the sheer breadth of her understanding and scholarship, deserves to make this collection a classic as each essay, in its turn, has already become."
