This collection examines some crucial interconnections between postcolonial theory and translation studies. As English becomes an increasingly global language, so more people become multilingual and translation becomes a important communal activity. The essays in this book, by contributors from Britain, the US, South America, India and Canada, explore new perspectives on translation in relation to post-colonial societies. The essay topics include: links between centre and margins in intellectual transfer; shifts in translation practice from colonial to post-colonial societies; translation and power relations in Indian languages; and Brazilian cannibalistic theories in literary transfer. Examining the relationships between power and language across cultural boundaries, this collection reveals the role of translation in redefining the meanings of culture and ethnic identity.

A veritable bible for fans and newcomers alike, Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film offers an extraordinary close-up of the hitherto overlooked golden age of Japanese cult cinema from the 1950s through the 1970s. Having unique access to top maverick filmmakers and Japanese genre film icons, Chris Desjardins brings together interviews with, and original writings on, such transgressive directors as Seijun Suzuki (Branded to Kill) and Koji Wakamatsu (Ecstasy of the Angels), as well as performers like Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba (The Streetfighter, Kill Bill Vol. 1) and Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood). Desjardins brings us up to date with an overview of such Japanese "enfants terribles" as Takashi Miike (Audition) and Kiyoshi Kurasawa (Cure). Illustrated with fantastic stills and posters from some of Japan's finest cult and action films, the book also provides detailed extras including filmographies and related bibliographies.
