Descrição

Without writing there would be no history and no civilization as we know it. But how when, and where did writing evolve? In a succinct and absorbing text, Andrew Robinson explains the interconnection between sound, symbol and script. He discusses each of the major writing systems in turn, from cuneiform and Egyptian and Mayan hieroglyphs to alphabets and the scripts of China and Japan, as well as others such as the Cherokee 'alphabet' and the writing of runes. Full coverage is given to the history of decipherment, and a provocative chapter devoted ti undeciphered scripts challenges the reader: can these codes ever be broken?
