Reviews

`Of exceptional pedagogical quality, Tyulenev's book is noteworthy for bringing together the various sociological models relevant to the study of translation and its agents. Readers are given a clear explanation of the connections and differences among these models, their interpretive value and their limitations. At the same time, the book suggests a research methodology that makes it an absolute must for students about to embark on a thesis. This highly informative textbook is bound to become a classic.' Annie Brisset, University of Ottawa, Canada 'Translation and Society is a highly accessible and persuasive introduction to the major debates around the relationship between translators and society. Sergey Tyulenev is a superb guide to the many ways in which sociology engages with translation and his careful analysis and illuminating examples will be of great assistance to any student or tutor of translation studies who wants to understand what theories of society have to tell us about the work of the translator. More broadly, Translation and Society will be of interest to students and tutors across the humanities and social sciences who are interested in the core debates around language and society in our globalised and multilingual world.' Professor Michael Cronin, Centre for Translation and Textual Studies, Dublin City University
