Summary
"Raffaella Sarti takes up in Europe at Home, a fascinating guide to European homes, families, and material possessions of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. The book traverses all of Europe and presents a detailed picture of daily reality for people at every economic level, from the ragged masses of the homeless to the privileged nobles who occupied grand villas and palaces. Vivid personal stories bring each topic to life and offer insights into human relations not only between rich and poor, powerful and weak, masters and servants, but also between parents and children, husbands and wives, and men and women."--Jacket
