The Translation Studies Reader provides a definitive survey of the most important and influential developments in translation theory and research, with an emphasis on twentieth-century developments. With introductory essays prefacing each section, the book places a wide range of seminal and innovative readings within their thematic, cultural and historical contexts.
This second edition of this classic reader has been fully revised and updated. Venuti has also extended the selection to include key pre-twentieth-century texts, adding a historical dimension. Other new readings expand the range of theoretical discourses and practical applications covered, exploring the influence of translation studies beyond its traditional boundaries, in fields such as philosophy, sociology and film studies.

Larry Venuti, professor of English at Temple University, USA, is a translation theorist and historian as well as a translator.Review:
'This is bound to be the most authoritative anthology of theoretical reflection on translation currently available in English. The selection of primary documents is varied and imaginative, the editorial introductions lucid and informed.'
–Theo Hermans, University College London, UK
'This updated, greatly expanded Translation Studies Reader will prove indispensable to scholars, translators and students. The volume's judicious selections provide a comprehensive history of translation from antiquity to the present and the terms of translation theory are critically assessed through a rich topography of subjects. As translation emerges as a focal point in the era of digital literacy and new media, Lawrence Venuti's Reader offers an invaluable index to defining the past and future task of the translator.'
–Emily Apter, New York University, USA
