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: Language, Citizenship and Identity in Quebec
Written By: Leigh Oakes
Jane Warren
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403949751
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

Globalization is calling for new conceptualizations of belonging within
culturally diverse communities. This book takes Quebec as a case study and
examines how it fosters a sense of belonging through a common citizenship
with French as the key element. As a nation without a state, Quebec is
driven by two distinct imperatives: the need to affirm a robust Francophone
identity within Anglophone North America, and the civic obligation to
accommodate an increasingly diverse range of migrant groups, as well as
demands for recognition by Aboriginal and Anglophone minorities.
