THE INTERPRETING STUDIES READER

"At last, the seminal articles on interpreting have been compiled in a
single volume. Many of them have been out of print, inaccessible, or
unavailable in English until now. A must for every library, whether
personal or institutional." -Holly Mikkelson, International
Interpretation Resource Center, California

The Interpreting Studies Reader is a comprehensive guide to the
growing area of interpreting studies. Spanning the multiple and
diverse approaches to interpreting, including conference, court and
sign-language interpreting, this reader collects the seminal articles
in the field and places them in their thematic and social
contexts. This book is an authoritative and up-to-date overview of
interpreting studies and the new directions the subject is taking in
the twenty-first century. Features include an introductory essay
reviewing the evolution of interpreting studies, organization into
seven thematic sections-each with an editors' introduction, a
comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading. From
interpretation in antiquity to projections about the future of the
field, this guide will have every essay a student, researcher or
practitioner could need.
