The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Title: The Cambridge Companion to Saussure
Edited By: Carol Sanders
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=052180051X
Description:

This Companion offers an original new account of Ferdinand de Saussure,
widely considered to be the founder of modern Linguistics as well as
Structuralism. In addition to looking at his pioneering Course in General
Linguistics, contributors consider his lesser-known early work, more
recently-discovered manuscripts, and influence on other disciplines such as
cultural studies, philosophy, literature and semiotics. With contributions
by specialists in each field, this comprehensive guide creates a unique
picture of the lasting importance of Saussure's thought.
