The Empire of the Mother: American Writing about Domesticity, 1830-1860
This stimulating book is a comprehensive record of the antebellum period. It examines various aspects of social history and intellectual history of that period in the context of the 19th century's “cult of domesticity.” The development of the ideology of domesticity in this period and its implications are clearly explored in this startling and important feminist work.
