Description

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.
