VAF member Tom Hubka published a new book, How the Working-Class Home Became Modern, 1900-1940, in December 2020.  This book analyzes a period when millions of average Americans saw accelerated improvement in their housing and domestic conditions. It is a detailed narrative that traces changes in household hygiene, sociability, and privacy practices that launched large portions of the working classes into the middle class, reconfiguring and enriching the standard account of the domestic transformation of the American home.
