Table of contents
The eighteen contributions that make up this volume provide the reader with a wide but insightful range of approaches to the role of translation in Eastern Europe, a topic that regrettably has received little attention so far in the Anglophone scholarly literature. Most of the contributors are Slavists affiliated with American universities.
