This review is from: The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book. It complements Mallory's book on the Indo-Europeans and takes a similar no-nonsense line. It is particularly good in its refutation of the woolly notions of certain archaeologists like Renfrew, Cunliffe and Pryor who would have us believe that the Indo-Europeans spread throughout Europe with farming. While it is quite technical in places, any intelligent general reader will be able to follow his arguments without difficulty. I can't recommend it highly enough.
