The Making of Home

(2013)
A non fiction book by

 
How did homes come to be seen as special places, distinct from houses? In this study of how the concept of 'home' developed in the West up until the early 20th century, Flanders first outlines the political, religious, economic and social developments that produced the circumstances in which 'home' flourished. In the second part of her book she describes how innovations in technology created the infrastructure that has become part of our notions of home, from comfortable furniture to plumbing.
