Understanding the history of care requires attention to personal narratives, such as a Maori grandmother's story, a Rarotongan leader's concept of duty to her people, or the sense of service that drove a long-term social worker. The case studies examined focus on the everyday nature of care operating across domestic, institutional and political spaces, and build upon areas of strength in women's history with its interest in family, motherhood, health, welfare, education and employment.
