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."

The European Union has succeeded in breaking down monetary and legal
barriers among its members. This volume presents a program for breaking
down linguistic barriers by teaching European languages in primary and
secondary schools using the approach of Modern Languages Across the
Curriculum (MLAC), what is essentially called content-based instruction in
the United States.
