The book Role of Translation in nation-building talks about how translators have always played a pivotal role in social and cultural change in society and how they continue to play a major role in the dissemination of the ever-expanding knowledge and information available today. In this globalized world, the demand for translation and language-related services has increased many
times and translation is not only needed for the creation of national identity but has also become an essential tool for keeping pace with the processes of globalization and localization. Many times we take for granted the translators crucial role at the (intra) national level and we are less aware of their equally pivotal place as mediators at the international level and, potentially, in the creation of the even larger and comprehensive global supranational identities which seem destined to follow in the future.

The book is also an attempt to find answers to issues like:

What role has translation played in Nation Building across the globe?
How easy or difficult is it to view Translation and Nation Building as a well-gelling couple?
Did translation play a role in Turkish modernism movements as well as during Turkey’s mingling with the European Union?
What about Translation and Nation Building in the African, Arabian, and Australian contexts?
Do national conflicts and language politics actually impact literary works and translations?
How can media play an effective part in bringing social changes by means of translations?
How has translation impacted the discourse on nationalism and globalization in the Arab World?
The book is very useful for researchers, academicians, students of translation, culture, and history.
