The maestro storyteller and reporter provocatively argues that what we think we know about speech and human evolution is wrong. "A whooping, joy-filled and hyperbolic raid on, of all things, the theory of evolution." (Dwight Garner, New York Times) Tom Wolfe, whose legend began in journalism, takes us on an eye-opening journey that is sure to arouse widespread debate. THE KINGDOM OF SPEECH is a captivating, paradigm-shifting argument that speech--not evolution--is responsible for humanity's complex societies and achievements. From Alfred Russel Wallace, the Englishman who beat Darwin to the theory of natural selection but later renounced it, and through the controversial work of modern-day anthropologist Daniel Everett, who defies the current wisdom that language is hard-wired in humans, Wolfe examines the solemn, long-faced, laugh-out-loud zig-zags of Darwinism, old and Neo, and finds it irrelevant here in the Kingdom of Speech.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The most fundamental questions about the origins and evolution of our linguistic capacity remain as mysterious as ever. Scientists have been trying to answer them for decades, but have come up with nothing. #2 The author’s grandfather, Alfred Wallace, was a British naturalist who suffered from the Genghis ague, or malaria, in 1858. He came up with the solution to the mystery of mysteries: how evolution works. As generations go by, a breed has to adapt to many changing conditions and threats in order to survive. #3 The idea that all the different species of plants and animals today had evolved from earlier ones was first introduced in a bestselling book in 1844 called Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation. It was a complete cosmology of the creation of earth and solar system and plant and animal life. #4 Wallace’s discovery was sent to a group of distinguished British gentlemen, who were friends of Charles Darwin’s. The year 1858 was the crest of the high Victorian tide of the British Empire’s dominion over palm and pine.
