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: Zutot 2003
Subtitle: Zutot: Perspectives on Jewish Culture 3
Edited By: Shlomo Berger
Michael Brocke
Irene E. Zwiep
Description:

Zutot: Perspectives on Jewish Culture aims to fill a gap that has become
more and more conspicuous among the wealth of scholarly periodicals in the
field of Jewish Studies. Whereas existing journals provide space to medium
and large sized articles, they neglect the small but poignant
contributions, which may be as important as the extended, detailed study.
The yearbook Zutot serves as a platform for small but incisive
contributions, and provides them with a distinct context. The substance of
these contributions is derived from larger perspectives and, though not
always presented in an exhaustive way, will have an impact on contemporary
discussions. Zutot covers Jewish Culture in its broadest sense, i.e.
encompassing various academic disciplines - literature, languages and
linguistics, philosophy, art, sociology, politics and history - and
reflects binary oppositions such as religious and secular, high and low,
written and oral, male and female culture.
