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: Boys and Foreign Language Learning
Subtitle: Real Boys Don't Do Languages
Written By: Jo Carr
Anne Pauwels
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403939675
Description:

Jo Carr and Anne Pauwels examine the continuing poor relationship between
boys and the study of foreign languages. Framed by discussion of gender
socialization, gendered curriculum practices and cultural narratives about
boys and schooling, the core of the book is constructed by boys themselves.
They talk about school, about themselves as learners, about teachers and
language classrooms. Their commentaries raise important issues for language
teachers and curriculum planners, but also for everyone involved in wider
conversations about boys, language, literacy and education.
