Editorial Reviews

Derek Attridge
The idea of collecting a number of essays from specialists in various disciplines addressing the question of the foreign is a highly original one, and has resulted in an impressively varied and wide-ranging volume. . . . Many attempts at interdisciplinary collections fail to achieve this kind of cohesiveness combined with variety, and the editor is to be congratulated on her successful meeting of this challenge. . . .The book is genuinely original and genuinely interdiscipinary.
