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: Multilingual Identities in a Global City
Written By: David Block
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403939640
Series Title: Language and Globalisation
Description:

Opening with a discussion of the key issues of globalization, migration,
multiculturalism, multilingualism and global cities, David Block then turns
to four detailed case studies: East Asian students living and working in
London; foreign language teachers from France; London's growing Latino
community; and second generation South Asian university students. Via these
case studies the book explores the ambivalent and multi-layered identities
of individuals who have crossed geographical and psychological borders
during the course of their lifetimes and settled in London, the
quintessential global city.
