Overview

Servicing the Middle Classes: Class, Gender and Waged Domestic Work in Contemporary Britain / Edition 1

Servicing the Middle Classes investigates the recent rise in demand by middle class families for waged domestic labour and the consequent growth of a new 'servant' class.
Examining the position of nannies and cleaners, the authors explore the national socio-economic trends which have led to this new phenomenon and the profound changes this reflects in our concepts of motherhood and class and gender relations.
