Empires of the Word: A Language History of the World
I’ve got a few books that try in one volume to make sense of the world’s languages. Although A History of World Languages, by Steven Roger Fischer, a sllimmer volume, does a creditable job, this book is formidable. I was particularly impressed by the scholarship on Asian languages, and the history of Chinese, and especially Indian cultural and linguistic influence far and wide. Most books of this type skimp on their non-Western content.
