Servants: A Downstairs View of Twentieth-century Britain is the social heritage of the final century throughout the eyes of these who served. From the butler, the footman, the maid and the cook dinner of 1900 to the au pairs, cleaners and childminders who took their position seventy years later, a formerly unheard type bargains a clean viewpoint on a dramatic century. the following, the voices of servants and household employees, principally neglected via heritage, are finally delivered to existence: their day-by-day family workouts, attitudes in the direction of their employers, and to one another, throw into sharp and intimate reduction the interval of feverish social switch during which they lived.
Sweeping in its scope, commonly researched and brilliantly saw, Servants is an unique and interesting portrait of twentieth-century Britain; an authoritative heritage that may swap and problem the best way we glance at society.
