Home Economics reintroduces readers to thrifty tips, down-home know-how, honest-to-goodness advice, and delicious recipes. Modeled on and compiled from vintage home-ec textbooks, this adorable guide contains everything needed to whip up and keep up a happy and healthy home life. It’s the art—and science—of housekeeping! Here’s a little background on the renewed home-ec movement: Gone are home ec’s negative connotations of gender-reinforcing tasks and outdated roles. Today’s feminists and scholars recognize the scientific origins of the home-ec movement and celebrate it as a legitimate discipline that teaches people about the things of everyday life: human growth and development, personal behavior, housing and environment, food and nutrition, apparel and textiles, and resource management. It empowers consumers to make sound decisions and enjoy a healthy, productive, and more fulfilling life. $14.95
