This book has a dual focus. As its title is meant to suggest, it is a history not just of housework but also of the tools with which that work is done: household technology. Human beings are tool-using animals; indeed, some anthropologists believe that, along with speech, , the ability to use and to refine our tools is precisely what sets us apart from other species of primates.
