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: Literacy: A Redefinition
Written By: Anthony Baratta

Description:

The concepts of the past, centered on traditional ways of learning to read and write, no longer suffice in a society that requires higher level skills. This volume offers a revitalized perspective of literacy, focusing on the forms that literacy will take in the future, the influence of changing technologies and multimedia on curriculum and instructional practices, and on effective learning environments.
