Extremely specialized and academic, too many details on who wrote what, on chariot warfare, on pottery. I expected a more lively approach on the Indo-European question, something more Runciman-style.

There is a somewhat limited use of evidence in this book. For example, Drews doesn't address Colin Renfew's main hypothesis and generally doesn't engage much on the topic of language. The scope of evidence is small, but the reliance on the evidence that is used is well done.
