Until Relatively Recently, household servants were much neglected by social historians and others and, if noted at all, were viewed chiefly through the eyes of their employers and moral critics. All that is now changing as part of history's fundamental democratisation as a subject. This volume highlights its subject as a field of employment that impinged on most aspects of the economic and social organisation of the time and on the ways in which they functioned.
R. C. Richardson is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Winchester.
