Kurzbeschreibung

1. This research breaks new ground in its focus on a population almost entirely overlooked in studies to date: female domestic servants in Morocco. It follows these women in their duties around the household, but also on their days off and when returning home to visit their family so that readers can have a broader understanding of their lives beyond the context of their service.

2. Author Mary Montgomery has prior experience working with the British Embassy in Amman and the British Red Cross as part of their International Family Tracing project.

3. The book has a strong potential for course adoption as the clear and compelling writing throughout the work and the focus on young women, many in their teens, makes the book accessible to undergraduate readers.
