This lively and accessible text includes: a critical overview of cultural theories in translation the role of 'culture-brokers' such as Aphra Behn, Madame de Stael, Eleanor Marx and Gayatri Spivak debates in feminist Bible translation the 'missed connections' in the transfer of French Feminism to America.
