The New Maids is a pioneering study, grounded in rich empirical evidence, which expertly addresses the thorny questions surrounding the growing number of migrant cleaners and caregivers who maintain modern Western households. Supported by an ethnographic study of immigrant domestic workers and their German employers, the author argues that domestic work plays the defining role in global ethnic and gender hierarchies. This exciting book not only will enhance the reader's understanding of the new care economy, it also sets a new standard for feminist methodology.
