This volume contains overviews on Afrasian as a whole and its
constituent families plus 23 articlesby internationally known
contributors. In order to arrive at a focussed volume of high-quality
papers, the editors chose to restrict the contents to what is arguably
Diakonoff's major field among the many in which he was a
world-renowned scholar. Diakonoff was the greatest comparative
historical Afrasianist during his long productive career spanning the
20th century. After a photograph of the dedicatee and a brief
biography and bibliography of major publications of Diakonoff, written
by Gabor Takacs, there follow the seven overviews and articles as
follows (some titles abbreviated):
