This book is the first major study of the history of singleness in England to include both women and men and stakes out new territory within an exciting, emerging field of study. The accessible style of writing, lack of jargon and the inclusion of fascinating case studies will attract both an academic and broader readership.The book: includes innovative material on adult/child relationships, showing how unmarried women were excluded from the nuclear family, yet still had levels of interest and involvement in children's care and education; draws upon an unusually wide range of sources including biographies, oral histories, novels, films, government statistics and social surveys; and uncovers the history of a neglected group and offers valuable insights into the significance of marital status which are relevant for current debates on marriage and family.
