Table of contents
This book made extremely interesting—indeed fascinating—reading. It covers virtually every aspect of the translation scene over the past hundred years. The wealth of detail is extraordinary. This is one of those books which should not be missing from the bookshelves of anyone seriously interested in the language business.
