Reviews

`The account of history of English-Tamil translation brought to light in the two volumes of this important work reinforces the fact that at different points of development, translation is of very different significance. Tellingly, Volume 1 is entitled Culture, Language and Identity, while in Volume 2 the focus shifts to Language, Culture and Power.' Susan Bassnett FRSL, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Glasgow; Professor Emerita and Special Advisor in Translation Studies, School of Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Warwick; and President, British Comparative Literature Association
