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: Children's Voices
Written By: Janet Maybin
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403933308
Description:

Drawing on ethnographic research inside and outside the classroom, Janet
Maybin investigates how 10-12 year-old children use talk and literacy to
construct knowledge about their social worlds and about themselves, as they
negotiate the transition from childhood into adolescence. Through the
analysis of examples of talk, she shows how children use collaborative
verbal strategies, stories of personal experience and the reworked voices
of others to investigate the moral order and forge their own identities.
