Silent Gesture: The Autobiography of Tommie Smith: Tommie Smith, David Steele
At the 1968 Olympics, Tommie Smith came in first in the 200-meter dash. As they received their medals, he and bronze winner John Carlos each raised a black-gloved fist, creating an indelible image of courage and protest that still resonates 40 years later. In this, his autobiography, Smith fills out the story of that moment - how it came to be and where it led him - and paints a vivid picture of the long, painful backlash that came with his fame, and his fate, all of which was rapped up in his ´´silent gesture´´. 1.

In The Silent Language of Leadership, Goman explains that personal space, physical gestures, posture, facial expressions can be used strategically to help leaders manage, motivate, lead global teams, and communicate clearly in the digital age.
In the everyday, but unspoken give-and-take of human relationships, the ´´silent language´´ plays a vitally important role. Here, a leading American anthropologist has analyzed the many qays in which people ´´talk´´ to one another without the use of words. The pecking order in a chicken yard, the fierce competition in a school playground, every unwitting gesture and action-this is the vocabulary of the ´´silent language.´´ According to Dr. Hall, the concepts of space and time are tools with which all human beings may transmit messages. Space, for example, is the outgrowth of an animal´s instinctive defense of his lair and is reflected in human society by the office worker´s jealous defense of his desk, or the guarded, walled patio of a Latin-American home. Similarly, the concept of time, varying from Western precision to Easter vagueness, is revealed by the businessman who pointedly keeps a client waiting, or the South Pacific islander who murders his neighbor for an injustice suffered twenty years ago. ´´THE SILENT LANGUAGE shows how cultural factors influence the individual behind his back, wihtout his knowledge.´´ -Erich Fromm

In a world where every word and gesture is copyrighted, patented, or trademarked, one girl elects to remain silent rather than pay to speak, and her defiant and unexpected silence threatens to unravel the very fabric of society. Speth Jime is anxious to deliver her Last Day speech and celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns 15, Speth must pay for every word she speaks (´´sorry´´ is a flat $10 and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec), and even every gesture of affection. She´s been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt and can´t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she´s unable to afford. But when Speth´s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family´s crippling debt, she can´t express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: Rather than read her speech - rather than say anything at all - she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth´s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family, and the entire city around them. 1.
