This book examines the role of the translator as a politically active one, with the potential to change the outcome of political, religious and social events. The contributors examine the effect of translation and intervention in a range of issues and case studies including the role of translation in the South African courtroom, Spanish religious publishing, Chinese rhetoric, and Arabic political interviews and speeches. The result is a comprehensive examination of this key question in translation studies: how can the translator avoid becoming a participant in the discourse he or she translates? "Intervention in Translating and Interpreting" is a fascinating collection of essays discussing this most central of topics in translation studies. It will be of interest to postgraduates and academics researching in this area.
