Servicing the Middle Classes by Nicky Gregson
Book DescriptionServicing 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.
