Table of contents
This volume of case studies on the relationship between translation and censorship aims at filling a gap in research by extending the horizon of existing studies, which have mostly concentrated on censorship in totalitarian regimes in the 20th century, through an exploration of the topic in the 19th century. It is also an attempt at refining the definition of censorship and the terminology employed in discussing the concept so that it retains its validity and remains critically useful.
