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: Writing in Action - A Resource Book for Writers
Written By: Paul Mills
URL: http://http://www.routledge.com/routledge.html
Description:

WRITING IN ACTION provides a step-by-step, practical guide to the process of writing. Although the emphasis is on creative writing such as fiction, poetry and drama, it also covers autobiographical writing and the writing of reports and essays. Because this is a book about process rather than product, WRITING IN ACTION also looks at the practice of adaptation and editing. It shows new writers how to get started, develops the confidence of more experienced writers, encourages experimentation and creativity, stimulates critical awareness through inclusion of illustrative texts and encourages writing as a skill as well as an art form. The book offers many practical suggestions and self-evaluation exercises, as well as invaluable tips on style, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary.
