COMMUNICATION by Harry Edward Neal
Kirkus Star


Email this review


This text traces the development of communication without which it never could have been written. Embracing every aspect of communication, Harry Edward Neal devotes considerable attention to the grunt, the giggle and the talking hands of primitive man showing that this means of contact persisted on our continent in some forms with the American Indians. He not only considers the more obvious media, -writing, printing, and ideographs--but discusses Braille, deaf and dumb language, code, extra-sensory perception, often in terms of specific incidents and people. Although there are other books available on the subject, Harry Edward Neal will find readers on the basis of the comprehensive and lively treatment he has given his subject.
