. ..a comprehensive analysis of the intervenience power of translators at different levels...an engaging collection of great interest to students and academics researching in this area. Rassegna di Linguistica Inglese, 2008


This collection of essays makes an important contribution for students and professors of missiology on at least two different levels. At the most basic level, Translation as Intervention provides multiple frameworks for thinking through the social, political, and ethical implications of intercultural communication, which is not unimportant considering that the effect of Lamin Sanneh's groundbreaking contribution to missiological discourse that focused on translation as a metaphor for mission. Second, Translation as Intervention serves as an up-to-date account of a global dialogue regarding the work of translation and the role of the translator which is also of great importance and interest to mission studies and activity. If, as this volume argues, any intercultural communication necessarily involves translation, and thus also intervention, then post-colonial mission studies must pay attention to the concerns and hopes addressed in Translation as Intervention. Scott J. Hagley, Missio
