Description - The World Republic of Letters by Pascale Casanova

The "world of letters" has always seemed a matter more of metaphor than of global reality. Rejecting facile talk of globalization, with its suggestion of a happy literary "melting pot," Pascale Casanova exposes an emerging regime of inequality in the world of letters, where minor languages and literatures are subject to the invisible but implacable violence of their dominant counterparts.
