Book review

Excerpt from Household Management

A Household economist who read the manuscript of this book said, upon returning it, "This will be a revelation to the dietitians, for nothing at all like it has ever been printed. It will give some of them their first conception of what the homemakers who live in mean streets and crowded cities have to contend with."

As editor of the Social Work Series, what has impressed me most in Miss Nesbitt's pages has been the evidence of keen observation and of a rarely democratic spirit. The individual householders whose troubles are described here - often by no more than a word or two - live for the reader and grip his attention, helping him to see everyday life more sanely and interpret it more sympathetically. Other social workers who have seen the proof-sheets have been enthusiastic for the practical reason that here are set down the definite steps by which the city dweller with small income and large family can get the most his money. Those who are far removed from dependence are glad enough, in these days, to have such knowledge. I have been interested to note, for example, that the clerks who copied these chapters were eager for each installment, finding many of the suggestions applicable to their own households.

Miss Nesbitt is not only a dietitian - she is a social case worker of varied experience.
