CRAFTSMANSHIP IS BACK in vogue, thanks in part to a heightened design consciousness, the historic preservation movement and, simply, the appreciation of materials lovingly wrought. As the authors note in an introduction that serves as an engagingly brief history of interior design, interest in craftsmanship has been cyclical and at present is a positive reaction of sorts against the standardization and mass production of recent decades. That stated, the authors methodically review craftsmanship by the medium--metal, paint, stone, and marble, tile, wood, plaster and glass.

If you're the sort of person who likes to foster lively debate at dinner parties, forget about Mario Cuomo, trade restrictions or Operation Rescue's upcoming spring assault. They're for rhetorical pantywaists. To guarantee conversational fireworks, just ask your guests: What should children eat, and how should parents go about getting them to eat it? At about the age of 6 months, give or take, an infant opens that bird-like mouth in the hope that something other than milk will be put into it. He's a perfectly blank little slate, digestively speaking--a tabulita rasa-- and mom and dad are in the powerful position (or so they think)
