Title: The Oxford Introduction to Proto-Indo-European and The Proto-Indo-European World
Written By: J. P. Mallory
Douglas Q. Adams
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199287918
Description:

This book introduces Proto-Indo-European, describes how it was
reconstructed from its descendant languages, and shows what it reveals
about the people who spoke it between 5,500 and 8,000 years ago. Using
related evidence from archaeology and natural history the authors explore
the lives, thoughts, passions, culture, society, economy, history, and
environment of the Proto-Indo-Europeans. They include chapters on fauna,
flora, family and kinship, clothing and textiles, food and drink, space and
time, emotions, mythology, and religion, and describe the quest to discover
the Proto-Indo-European homeland.
