From The Midwest Book Review
Communication will happen with or without hearing. Show of Hands: A Natural History of Sign Language chronicles the history of sign language, and perhaps indirectly, the history of language as a whole. From the earliest states of human history and perhaps a bit further back, David F. Armstrong discusses how sign language has developed in both the hearing and non hearing worlds. With a focus on deafness and its effects on history, Show of Hands is a strong addition to any language and deaf studies collection on the bigger picture of it all.
David F. Armstrong is an anthropologist and former Executive Director and Budget Director, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC.
