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: A Handbook of Germanic Etymology
Written By: Vladimir E Orel
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=11233
Description:

This book represents a reconstruction of the Proto-Germanic vocabulary as
attested in ancient and modern Germanic languages and projected to the
Proto-Germanic level. The volume contains valuable linguistic information
giving an outline of Proto-Germanic language, culture and pre-historic
tradition. It is the first attempt to reconstruct the Proto-Germanic
lexicon after the work of Falk and Torp in the beginning of the XXth century.
