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 in the New Media Age
Written By: Gunther Kress
Series Title: Literacies
Description:

In this 'New Media Age' the screen has replaced the book as the dominant medium of communication. This dramatic change has made image, rather than writing, the center of communication. In this groundbreaking new book, Gunther Kress considers the effects of a revolution that has radically altered the relation between writing and the book. Taking into account social, economic, communicational and technological factors, Kress explores how these changes will affect the future of literacy.
