Cultural Encounters in Translation from Arabicby Said Faiq
Assessing theories and providing examples, scholars of Arabic language and literature and of translation theory argue that the discourse of translating from Arabic into Western languages reflects a past and a lexicon dominated by fixed perceptions of Arabic culture as dead, with nothing to contribute to global culture but terrorism, tribalism, and political mischief. A general bibliography augments references for each essay. Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
