This is a study of the relationship between translation, culture and counterculture, presenting a political and ideological vision of translating. Offering an approach to the cultural turn in Translation Studies at the end of the century, the book endeavours to explore the closer links between cultural studies and translation. It presents the arguments of several scholars on the most innovative ways of understanding translation, in order to clarify the role and function of translations and translators in culture and society.
