Menials: Domestic Service and the Cultural Transformation of British Society, 1650-1850

Menials explores major changes in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British culture and society by examining how writers used representations of domestic servants to characterize and observe those changes. This book contextualizes fiction with economic theory and conduct texts, periodicals, and estate papers to demonstrate how “the servant problem” enabled Britons to work through a larger crisis in the representation of social and national subjectivity.
