Description
In this three-volume collection, Steven Roger Fischer explores the art of communication, delving into the past and looking ahead to the future. A History of Language offers an examination of early human language and writing, a history of linguistics, and an analysis of how the electronic media are reshaping the world's languages. From scratches on stone to the Internet, A History of Writing begins with the emergence of writing systems in ancient Mesopotamia and describes the significance of writing in a future global society. And in A History of Reading Fischer describes the act of reading, its practitioners, and its manifestations on stone, wall, tablet, book, and screen.
