"The Interpreting Studies Reader" is a comprehensive guide to the growing area of interpretation studies. Spanning the multiple and diverse approaches to interpretation, including conference, court and sign-language interpretation, this reader collects the seminal articles in the field and places them in their thematic and social contexts. This book is an authoritative and up-to-date overview of interpretation studies and the new directions the subject is taking in the twenty-first century. Features include an introductory essay reviewing the evolution of interpretation studies, organization into seven thematic sections-each with an editors' introduction, a comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading. From interpretation in antiquity to projections about the future of the field, this guide will have every essay a student, researcher or practitioner could need.

"'At last, the seminal articles on interpreting have been compiled in a single volume. Many of them have been out of print, inaccessible, or unavailable in English until now. A must for every library, whether personal or institutional.'" - Holly Mikkelson, International "Interpretation Resource Center, California, USA." "A first-rate introduction to the whole area of interpreting studies. "Introducing Interpreting Studies is informed, authoritative and written in a clear and engaging style. A must for anyone involved in the teaching or study of interpreting and of value to anyone with an interest in interlingual and intercultural communication in today's world." -Michael Cronin, Dublin City University, Ireland "Franz Pochhacker's textbook is a first, indispensable for students and teachers of interpretation. A solid foundation for further research." -Alexandre Mikheev, Monterey Institute of International Studies, USA
