MyNDTALK - On the Other Hand - Dr. Howard I. Kushner

Since the late Stone Age, approximately 10 percent of humans have been left-handed, yet for most of human history left-handedness has been stigmatized. In On the Other Hand, Howard I. Kushner traces the impact of left-handedness on human cognition, behavior, culture, and health.

In this comprehensive history of left-handedness, Kushner asks why left-handedness exists. He examines the relationship - if any between handedness, linguistics, and learning disabilities, reveals how toleration of left-handedness serves as a barometer of wider cultural toleration and permissiveness, and wonders why the reported number of left-handers is significantly lower in Asia and Africa than in the West. On the Other Hand tells a comprehensive story about the science, traditions, and prejudices surrounding left handedness.  Indeed, in many ways - On the Other Hand is a metaphor for all the isms to which we allow ourselves to fall victim.
