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."

In today’s globalized world of international contact and multicultural
interaction, effective intercultural communication is increasingly seen as

handbook takes a “problem-solving” approach to the various issues that
arise in real-life intercultural interaction. The editors have brought
together experts from a range of disciplines, including linguistics,
psychology and anthropology, to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on
the field, whilst simultaneously anchoring it in Applied Linguistics.
