Peter Newmark's third book is an attempt to deepen and extend his views on translation. He goes easy on theories and models and diagrams and offers a few correlative statements to assist translators in finding a variety of options and in making their decisions. He discusses political concepts, linguistic interference and the role of words and discourse in translation. There are chapters on teaching translation, teaching about translation and the reason for the growing international importance of translation. Finally, Professor Newmark insists on the distinction between cultural and universal aspects of language, and sees translation as a critical and sometimes cruelly truthful weapon in exposing language, culture and literature. Peter Newark's views on translation are controversial; as a compensation he offers an abundance of interesting translation examples.
