Summary:
Historians have traditionally seen domestic service as an obsolete or redundant sector from the middle of the 20th century. 'Knowing Their Place' challenges this by linking the early 20th century employment of maids and cooks to later practices of employing au pairs, mothers' helps, and cleaners.
