“As with the commander of an army, or the head of any enterprise, it is therefore with the mistress of the houseA founding text from the Victorian era of the middle class identity, the Management of the Home is today one of the great unread classicsMore than a thousand pages long, and written when its author was only 22 years old, he offered very authoritative advice on subjects as diverse as fashion, childcare, animal husbandry, poisons, and civil servant management.For the modern reader expects from the congestion of moralization and lacrimation of vegetables, Beeton’s book is a revelation: it varies considerably in the foods of Europe and beyond, to actively participate in the adoption of new foods and techniques of internal mixing boards with discussions of science, religion, class, industrialism and gender roles.As an alternative to fashion and frugality, anxiety and blusteringly self-confident, Home Management highlights the concerns of the constant progression of the Victorian middle class at a key moment in its history.The abridged edition does justice to its high status as a cookbook, while suggesting ways to approach this massive, hybrid text as an important document of social and cultural historyON SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the worldEach affordable volume reflects Oxford’s commitment to studies, providing the most accurate text, plus a host of other useful functions, including experts in introductions by major authorities, useful notes to clarify the text, updated bibliographies for further study, and many more
