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: Situated Literacies: Reading and Writing in Context
Edited By: David Barton
Roz Ivanic
Mary Hamilton
Description:

Situated Literacies is a rich and varied collection of key writings from leading international scholars in the field of literacy. Each contribution, written in a clear, accessible style, makes the link between literacies in specific contexts and broader practices. Among the issues discussed are: the visual and material aspects, concepts of time and space, how literacies shape and sustain identities in communities, the relationship between texts and their practices and the role of discourse analysis. Together, these studies, along with a foreword by Denny Taylor, make a timely and important contribution to understanding the ways in which literary practices are part of the broader social processes.
