    This unusual book is a collection of articles setting out the case for teaching domestic science as an academic subject up to the highest levels of education. The contributing authors are Catherine Schiff, Wenona Hoskyns-Abrahall, Mrs W.N. Shaw, Mabel Atkinson, Alice Ravenhill, Mrs R.W. Eddison and Maud R. Taylor. The contents vary from the detailed and practical "Housecraft' by Maud R. Taylor and "Science in the household' by Mrs. W.N. Shaw to the more polemical "The place of biology in the equipment of women' by Wenona Hoskyns-Abrahall, which recommends that housewives be taught bacteriology.
