Summary: Praise for the first edition 'A 'house of many rooms' is an apt description of the way Translation Studies has evolved in the last thirty years or so. To capture this diversity, an extensive body of comments has grown around the range of issues underpinning the major debates on translation. Jeremy Munday's book responds to the challenge not only of having to provide for the profound plurality now characteristic of the field, but also to present a snapshot of a rapidly developing discipline in a clear, concise and graphic way. This is a book which raises strong awareness of current issues in the field and will be of interest to translation trainers and trainees alike.' - Basil Hatim, Heriot-Watt University, UK.
