The Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture provides full, inclusive coverage of the major Indo-European language stocks and their origins. The Encyclopedia also includes numerous entries on archaeological cultures having some relationship to the origin and dispersal of Indo-European groups-as well as entries on some of the major issues in Indo- European cultural studies.
There are two kinds of entries in the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture: a) those that are devoted to archaeology, culture, or the various Indo-European languages; and b) those that are devoted to the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European words.
With more than 700 entries, written by specialists from around the world, the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture has become an essential reference text in this field.

Summary: Amazing
Rating: 5

This is a remarkable book. It collects short essays on everything Indo-European. Most impressive is how well it is indexed by topic, by cited words, by category. For each root, the equivalent is given in other compendiums, such as Pokorny. A wide selection of reflexes are given for each root. I get the impression that Mallory and Adams talked to every scholar in Indo-European studies, asked what they wanted included, and included all of that. It is one of my favorite books; I read the whole thing straight through when I bought it, and still used it frequently. I wish it were still in print, but if you are interested in the topic, find it somewhere. You won't regret it.

Please ignore the ignorant review entitled bogus.
Summary: IE Studies Are Well-Established
Rating: 5

Mallory Adams have also written The Oxford Introduction to Proto-Indo-European the Proto-Indo-European World, which is complementary. Both are excellent.

As to the ignorant statement (below, 'Bogus'): Trubetzkoy was _alone_ in his notion, Jean-Paul Demoule is an _archaeologist_.(See his work.) Archaeology linguistics are two _different_ specialisms. Trubetzkoy Demoule are obviously lumped together _only_ because they say something similar. This in turn reveals an ignorance/incomprehension of the entire field of Indo-European studies.
