This book tracks the complex and important relationship between the "ideal" and the "commonplace" in the social purpose of architecture and design intended for the family. Recognizing the importance of the 19th-century legacy and examining the cultural agenda to provide a better life, the study is defined by two major periods of national reconstruction. Core areas covered are family homes and new neighborhoods, the products and schemes for everyday life, and the housewife and family lifestyle.
