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: The Language of the Kharoṣṭhi Documents From Chinese Turkestan
Written By: T. Burrow
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/knowledge/isbn/item6480127/The%20Language%20of%20the%20Kharo%E1%B9%A3%E1%B9%ADhi%20Documents%20from%20Chinese%20Turkestan/?site_locale=en_US
Description:

The documents discussed in this 1937 book were found by Sir Aurel Stein at
the turn of the twentieth century. In this text, they were interpreted for
the first time. Mr Burrow has identified the language in which they are
written, and has succeeded in interpreting their meaning. He here presents
a grammar of the language, with a full discussion of its peculiarities and
its relation to other Indian languages.
