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."

Description
Being created on 5th October 1983 as an integrated department of the Federal University of Alagoas (Ufal), the mission of editing and distributing works and publications of scientific interest was launched and, nowadays, it has already become an institution which has been awarded with a lot of prizes nationally. In order to consolidate its publishing policy beyond the university walls, the university press has been travelling through tough ways and overcoming the limits and difficulties that are common to the quotidian of such institutions. And, in this trip, it has counted on the support of the Brazilian Association of University Presses (Abeu) and the Inter-University Program of Book Distribution (PIDL) for publishing books, magazines and other materials aimed at the regional academic production. In 2005, Edufal became the pioneering university press in Brazil in developing the Braille Project.
