the author offers an extensive bibliography; his main purpose is to offer students a clear survey of the approaches of various scholars ... an excellent, informative introduction to the topic which will render great service to students * Journal of Indo-European Studies, Volume 24, Number 3 and 4, Fall/Winter 1996 *
the book does a good job of drawing together and providing a fairly consistent presentation of a variety of historical views ... Besides breadth of scope, the text provides an excellent bibliography ... The author's aim is to provide the student with a sense not only of techniques but of the discipline itself. He provides a very competent and sensitive account of the rival approaches in historical studies and provides also a sense of the consequent tentative character even of fundamental matters. * James Hearne, Western Washington University, Linguistics 33 *
a great deal to recommend it, particularly the description of the contrast of the CM and IR. * Diachronica *
One does not need to know about historical linguistics to understand this book. Fox assumes his reader is acquainted with the basics of linguistics, but even a novice in historical linguistics can plunge into this book. * Notes on Linguistics 78 *
