Title: Critical Readings in Translation Studies
Edited By: Mona Baker
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/Critical-Readings-in-Translation-Studies-isbn9780415469548
Description:

Critical Readings in Translation Studies is an integrated and structured
set of progressive readings from translation and related disciplines, which
provides students with a comprehensive overview of the field and how it is
developing. Designed to be the most student-friendly volume available, this
reader:

- Covers all the main forms of translation - literary, non-literary,
scientific, commercial and audiovisual

- Uses a thematic structure: topics covered include how translation relates
to discourse and ideology, the place of translation in institutional
settings and alliances, and its role in new media and technology

- Explains the key approaches to conceptualizing translation: from textual
and philosophical to cultural and political

- Includes core material from renowned scholars, but also innovative and
less well-known work from scholars both in related disciplines and in the
non-western world

Complete with full editorial support from Mona Baker, including general and
section introductions, abstracts for each of the readings and further
reading, the book’s thematic structure guides students and scholars through
the field. This book is an essential resource for all students of
translation studies.
