Excerpt from The Business of Being a Housewife: A Manual to Promote Household Efficiency and Economy The preparation of food and the management of a home is the oldest business on earth. To-day the knowledge of housewifery has been systematized into an exact science, taught in colleges, expounded on the lecture platform, elaborated and popularized by means of books, magazines and newspaper pages. The business of Armour and Company is to gather the choice food products of America, to prepare, to standardize them so quality can be guaranteed and recognized at a glance, and then to distribute them to the world. To do this in a manner that will insure the highest quality food to the consumer at lowest possible cost for the necessary handling and preparing is the ideal on which the Armour institution is founded. In this connection the Armour Department of Domestic Science, under the direction of Mrs. Jean Prescott Adams, is a most active aid. Mrs. Adams understands the housewives' needs; she also knows the vast range and variety of Armour food products, the high standard that governs their choice, the expert and sanitary conditions under which they are prepared. Much that has been accomplished in our laboratories and experimental kitchens we feel is of use to the general public, and, therefore, in this little manual we are offering some condensed, practical ideas regarding food preparation and recipes, with tested methods of promoting household efficiency and economy not generally treated in books on cookery. Beginning with a full list of foods, arranged so that well-balanced menus can be easily selected for the various meals, the book follows on with much technical information. This includes foundation recipes, or the elementary principles on which many dishes of similar nature may be built, chart showing the correct distribution of foods in the kitchen, a scientific method of deep fat frying and a chart of meat cuts, with suggestions for properly cooking the cheaper and less popular portions to produce appetizing and wholesome results. There are also helpful ideas for arranging the kitchen, for testing temperature, suggestions for church suppers, picnics, and the ever-yawning school lunch box. There are condensed directions for serving meals both with and without a maid, a list of household utensils used in the practical kitchen and an outline for a household budget which enables the housewife to regulate household expenses. The distributing and spending of the family income is largely in the hands of the housewife; the responsibility for the health and well-being of the family is hers also, and we believe she will welcome what help it is within our power to give on these subjects. In this connection the questions of pure foods and Government Meat Inspection are of great importance. Armour and Company believe in making all food products so that grade as well as purity is guaranteed by the label. Armour meats are prepared under strict Government Inspection and under conditions of sanitation approved of by the Federal Inspectors. It is obvious that meats so prepared are the kind the careful housewife should buy. In the compiling of this book our Domestic Science staff has had the valuable assistance of several food authorities of national reputation.

The domestic play flourished on the English popular stage during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Its roots were predominantly native, rather than classical, and its mainspring was the staging of domestic conflict amongst English characters from the middle ranks of society. Household Business traces the genre's origins in the cycle plays of medieval England and examines its aesthetic configurations in relation to extra-literary discourses and practices that underwrote Renaissance ideologies of private life. At a time when the orthodox view of the family defined it as the foundation of the social order, a number of domestic dramas took a more critical perspective, stressing the contradictions and struggles that attend marriage and the patriarchal family. In addition to well-known domestic dramas as A Woman Killed with Kindness, Arden of Feversham, The Witch of Edmonton, and A Yorkshire Tragedy, Viviana Comensoli analyzes less well-studied plays as A Warning for Fair Women, Two Lamentable Tragedies, and The Late Lancashire Witches. The book also provides an extensive and timely assessment of domestic comedy, demonstrating how plays such as The London Prodigal, The Fair Maid of Bristow, and The Honest Whore (Parts I and II) resist homiletic paradigms in favour of a more dialectical dramaturgy.

The Foundations of Female Entrepreneurship explores the relationship between home, household headship and enterprise in Victorian London. It examines the notions of duty, honor and suitability in how women’s ventures are represented by themselves and others and engages in a comparison of the interpretation of historical female entrepreneurship by contemporaries and historians in the UK, Europe and America. It argues that just as women in business have often been hidden by men, they have often also been hidden by the ‘home’ and the conceptualization of separate spheres of public and private agency and of ‘the’ entrepreneur. Drawing on contextual evidence from 1747 to 1880, including fire insurance records, directories, trade cards, newspapers, memoirs, the census and extensive record linkage, this study concentrates on the early to mid-Victorian period when ideals about gender roles and appropriate work for women were vigorously debated. Alison Kay offers new insight into the motivations of the Victorian women who opted to pursue enterprises of their own. By engaging in empirical comparisons with men's business, it also reveals similarities and differences with the small to medium sized ventures of male business proprietors. The link between home and enterprise is then further excavated by detailed record linkage, revealing the households and domestic circumstances and responsibilities of female proprietors. Using both discourse and data to connect enterprise, proprietor and household, The Foundations of Female Entrepreneurship provides a multi-dimensional picture of the Victorian female proprietor and moves beyond the stereotypes. It argues that active business did not exclude women, although careful representation was vital and this has obscured the similarities of their businesses with those of many male business proprietors.

The goal for consumer oriented business should be to make a profit and to do it without costing the Earth. Yet exactly how to satisfy the needs and wants of consumers without contributing to environmental degradation is proving to be the essential, but elusive goal for businesses in the 21st century.The leading solution is to substitute material consumption with the consumption of services that offer consumers convenience and value but eliminate much of the inefficiency and waste associated with our throw-away society. Sustainable consumer services for households - services that are delivered to consumers at the premises such as home delivery of organic food, appliance leasing, mobile laundry services, internet marketing of homeservices or car pool schemes - provide a key part of the answer of how to reduce material consumption and waste while still turning a profit. Yet until now there has been little information to guide the development of such business models and practices, and to develop ways to make service-based consumption more attractive to consumers than object-ownership-based models.This book, equally a practical business handbook and business course text, provides the missing link in sustainable household service competitiveness by examining the issues, looking at business models, providing dozens of real-life best-practice examples and presenting data from the first large-scale consumer survey that explains consumer behaviour and what they want from home service provision. The book is an essential resource for businesses and public or nonprofit organizations and housing organizations entering the growing consumer services market. It provides a wealth of business know-how on what works and what doesnt, how to avoid potential pitfalls, and how to provide consumer services at the household level that are profitable, environmentally sustainable and that add to consumers quality of life.
