Table of contents
This volume forms part of Routledge's Translation Studies series (general editors: Susan Bassnett and André Lefevere). The general editors' preface formulates the goal of this series, namely, the presentation of the whole range of works on Translation Studies in order to enable the readers to follow all new developments which are taking place in the field of this "recently separate discipline", and states at the same time that "since this series of books on translation studies is the first of its kind, it will be concerned with its own genealogy" (p. vii). These aims are salutary and beneficial indeed, even though not unique any longer, since the increasing popularity of Translation Studies has led other publishing houses to start similar series with very similar purposes.
