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: Immersion Education: International Perspectives
Edited By: Robert K Johnson
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521583853
Description:

Immersion, a relatively new approach to bilingual education, orginated in
Canada. It uses the target language as a medium of instruction in order to
achieve "additive bilingualism"-- a high level of second language
proficiency added to normal development in the L1. The wide range of
languages and purposes now served by immersion worldwide is illustrated by
case studies of thirteen programs presented and discussed in this book.
The introductory chapter defines immersion education theory and practice
and shows how this approach differs from other forms of bilingual education.
