This work considers representations of domesticity and domestic labour over the last two centuries in historical, popular and feminist texts, tracing key moments in the construction of an idea whose political power and effectivity in the United States' national imagination the author asserts cannot be overestimated - that of normative domestic femininity. The text is intended for students of American studies, cultural and media studies, and women's studies.
