Review quote

"Jeremy Munday's Introducing Translation Studies has long been admired for its combination of theoretical rigour and down-to-earth explanation, and this new edition will further confirm its place as the go-to introduction for students and teachers alike. Its further incorporation of ideas from the Chinese context is particularly welcome." Robert Neather, Hong Kong Baptist University, China "An even better fourth edition of a widely popular and commonly used book in Translation Studies (TS). Like former editions, Munday's volume is a sound and accessible introduction to TS that will appeal not only to readers with a professional interest in TS but also to scholars and students in related fields. In Introducing Translation Studies, Munday combines scholarly rigor with reader-friendly style and an excellent didactic orientation, which will continue to make this book highly attractive to students, teachers and newcomers." Sonia Colina, University of Arizona, USAshow more
