Language and Globalization: The History of Us All is a short book combining my two interests, Linguistics and History. Linguistics contains some intriguing hints about the entirety of the human journey, hints which have been confirmed in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century by genetics. How do History, Linguistics, and Genetics connect? What do they tell us about the fifty-thousand year human journey condensed into the contentious word globalization? This short book hopes to open the door to the answer, and hopes also to inspire some awe at both the grand cycles of human development and reconnection, and the way spontaneous order works to uplift us in spite of ourselves.

Mark David Ledbetter is a visiting professor of linguistics at Hosei University in Tokyo; he has spent over thirty-five years teaching in Japan. He has published a number of books in both English and Japanese, including three volumes of America's Forgotten History. He is presently working on the fourth volume of that series.
