    This unusual and interesting book represents the author's attempt to solve the problem of how to teach home-making as an aspect of home life, not as an academic subject. In her own words, "the work was always approached as some aspect of home-life, never as so-called "Domestic Science", which, alas, is frequently very doubtful science with nothing "domestic" about it at all' (preface). The photographs which illustrate the text show pupils at the Ranmoor Council University demonstration school, Sheffield, participating in homecraft lessons.
