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: Dimensions of Literacy
Subtitle: A Conceptual Base for Teaching Reading and Writing in School Settings, Second Edition
Written By: Stephen B. Kucer
Description:

This popular text examines literacy from a multidimensional and
interdisciplinary perspective. It "unpackages" the various dimensions of
literacy--linguistic, cognitive, sociocultural, and developmental--and at
the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. The goal is
to provide a conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and
instruction in school settings can be grounded.
