Additional Information: The chapter uses 19th century novels as sites for an historical exploration of care and care work, alongside other primary sources and histories, in relation to present day concerns. The chapter addresses: the gendering of care work, issues of social class, questions of training and qualification, the location of care and provision in the private and in the public sector, the ethos of care, the work involved in caring, and care as responsibility. The chapter outline was peer reviewed. It uses, as far as I know, an original approach to this area.
