This cultural history of the British nanny explores the difficult role they have always had in family life, as more than an employee but not quite part of the family. It reveals the origins of the British tradition of employing nannies, and the changes over time in our taste for this method of childcare. The scholarly text is informed by many personal stories of nannies, mothers and children, and a final chapter examines the portrayal of nannies in fiction and film.
