The conclusion summarizes the arguments made by the book, and offers vignettes of domestic service relationships that illustrate the contradictory emotions often felt about it. Change over time is summarized, and the powerful links between domestic service and forms of modernity or ‘modern living’ are emphasized. The ambivalence middle-class women felt for housework is re-emphasized.
