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."


Book Information

   

Title: The Transformation of Capitalist Society
Written By: Zellig S Harris
Description:

With the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union,
there is a widespread assumption that capitalism is triumphant and
immutable. It is now necessary for scholars to assess the strengths and
weaknesses of capitalism, and the emerging processes that are transforming
it. In The Transformation of Capitalist Society, Harris presents a
compelling interpretation of the self-transformative capacities of
capitalism. He argues that economic democracy and employee ownership and
control are viable, socio-economic strategies of the transformation of
capitalist societies. This book provides a valuable historical, economic,
and sociological analysis of changes in the capitalist system. Although
this book is not about linguistics or language, it is of interest to
linguists (aside from its intrinsic interest to anyone) because of its
author's role in the development of a science of language.
