A Language Older Than Words

by

A Language Older Than Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At once a beautifully poetic memoir and an exploration of the various ways we live in the world, A Language Older Than Words explains violence as a pathology that touches every aspect of our lives and indeed affects all aspects of life on Earth. This chronicle of a young man's drive to transcend domestic abuse offers a challenging look at our worldwide sense of community and how we can make things better.

Synopsis:

Jensen's ground-breaking first book clarifies the very real parallels between human-human abuse and human environmental degradation.
