Title: Cultural Encounters in Translation from Arabic
Edited By: Said Faiq
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=18535967430
Series Title: Topics in Translation
Description:

Translation is intercultural communication in its purest form. Its power in forming and/or deforming cultural identities has only recently been acknowledged, given the attention it deserves. The chapters in this unique volume assess translation from Arabic into other languages from different perspectives: the politics, economics, ethics, and poetics of translating from Arabic; a language often neglected in western mainstream translation studies.
