 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. 
 Linguistic Field(s): Translation
 Subject Language(s): Arabic, Standard (Language Code: ABV)
 Written In: English  (Language Code: ENG)
