Past President of the Linguistic Association and the International Society for the Comparative Study ofCivilizations, Roger Williams Wescott presents the case for a number of hypotheses that take issue withcommonly held beliefs about the nature of past civilizations. "Fresh perceptions are likely," he says, "onlywhen core consensualities are challenged." The ideas presented are thought-provoking; the writing is suitablefor both academic and nonacademic readers.
