Recommended to Christian by: Sociology Professor
This book really delves into an adequate, in-depth discussion of the interpersonal relationship between women in the domestic service sector. The only thing that really prevented me from giving it a five is that by the end of the book, I felt like some of the ideas were overtly repetitive. Otherwise, it's a great read and I think it's just me being picky.

While ethically problematic in her methods (and she offers something in the way of an explanation, but not a good enough one), Rollins has produced a fantastic study of everyday relations and the subtle push and pull between women and their domestics at a particular moment in this country's history.
