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: Language, Nation and Power
Written By: Robert McColl Millar
Description:

Language, Nation and Power provides students with a discussion of the ways
in which language has been (and is being) used to construct national (or
ethnic) identity. It focuses on the processes by which a language can be
planned and standardized and what the results of these processes are.
Particular emphasis is given to the historical and social effects which
nationalism has had on the development of language since the French
Revolution. For students of linguistics, sociology and politics.
