Description
Focusing on the second half of the 18th century, a period when Britain was almost continuously at war, this is an innovative study of women who stayed at home while their men went to sea, and surveys social groups from the aristocratic elite to the laboring and criminal poor, prostitutes, and petty thieves. Drawing on a range of material from personal letters to trial reports, and illustrated with color reproductions of popular and bawdy prints, it exposes the personal cost of warfare and also reveals the opportunities for greater self-determination that some women were able to grasp, as the responsibility for maintaining the home fell on them.
