This book offers a distinctive and accessible approach to the earliest encounters of the barbarian societies of Northern Europe
with classical antiquity and with early Christianity. It brings together linguistic evidence from across Europe and dating from before
Caesar to about 900 AD, to shed light on important aspects of Germanic culture. It shows how historical phonology and semantics, often
avoided by nonspecialists, can provide important clues for historians and archaeologists of the period. Likewise, it demonstrates that
philologists and linguists ignore historical evidence at their peril.
The purpose of this book is to use our knowledge of the early Germanic languages to fill in gaps in our knowledge of the history and
culture of the peoples who spoke them. The book provides a great deal of information, organized by divisions of culture, such as warfare
and religion. I have two main criticisms. First, the author presupposes a bit more knowledge of the Germanic languages and of Latin than
most readers are likely to have. This will from time to time make a point difficult to follow.

The most accessible, well-balanced history of the German language available! No comparable work is available in
English or German that gives readers an adequate foundation in the methods, goals, and results of historico-comparative
linguistics as they apply to the German language and its historical antecedents. Waterman's monograph excels through its
clear presentation of materials, the extensive use of charts and maps, and a well- organized bibliography. A wealth of
examples document a surprisingly broad review of German language issues.

This is an excellent Anglo-Saxon dictionary, and at a reasonable price. This book does a good job of bringing
together a lexicon of Old English words. Keeping in mind that several modern languages sprung partly from this base,
so it helps if the reader understands some German. For example, the "ge-" prefix is used much the same way that it
is used in German. However, there is one important error to keep in mind, and that is the use of the "eth" character
for cases where "thorn" is used in the original texts. But, this small error do not subtract much from the overall
quality and usefulness of this dictionary.
