Description
 
Right Hand, Left Hand: The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains, Bodies, Atoms and Cultures, by Chris McManus.
Professor McManus takes the reader on a trip through history around the world, and into the cosmos, to explore the place of handedness in nature and culture. Chris McManus considers evidence from anthropology, particle physics, the history of medicine, and the notebooks of Leonardo to answer questions like: Why are most people right handed? Why does European writing go from left to right, while Arabic and Hebrew go from right to left? And how do we know that Jack the Ripper was left-handed? Chris McManus is Professor of Psychology and Medical Education at University College London.
