The current volume contains selected papers submitted after Critical Link 5 (Sydney 2007) and arises from its topic - quality interpreting being a communal responsibility of all the participants. It takes the much discussed theme of professionalisation of community interpreting to a new level by stating that achieving quality depends not only on the technical skills and ethics of interpreters, but equally upon all other parties that serve multilingual populations: speakers, employers and administrators, educational institutions, researchers, and interpreters. Major articles outline both innovative practices in legal and medical settings and prevailing deficiencies in community interpreting in different countries. While Part I, A shared responsibility: The policy dimension, addresses the macro environment of specific social policy contexts with constrains that affect interpreting, Part II,Investigations and innovations in quality interpreting, reveals a number of admirable cases of interpreters working together with their client institutions in a variety of social settings. Part III is dedicated to the questions of Pedagogy, ethics and responsibility in interpreting. The collection is an important reference book catering to the interpreting community: interpreting practitioners and interpreter users, researchers, educators, and students.

New Book Takes a Personal Look at War and Interconnected Lives
Memoir reveals an intimate glimpse of the impact of WWII and aerial warfare

MCDONOUGH, Ga. (Release Date TBD) Within the colossal stage of the Second War, millions of human destinies were inexplicably intertwined and eventually led to the ultimate triumph of good over evil. Author James F. Risher, Jr. gives an inside glimpse of warfare through his book, Particles In A Stream D-Day And After, published posthumously by his sons, James F. Risher III and Joseph K. Risher. This significant and fast moving personal account reveals Risher's experiences in the United States Strategic bombing campaign as a member of the Eight U.S. Army Air Force in the European theatre of World War II.
This book is more than a combat history it is a story of impressions and feelings about the stresses upon human beings associated with this form of combat, as they become part of a cohesive aerial combat crew. It tells how men depended on each other to survive combat missions. It reveals the response of individuals to the growing, repeated stress of aerial warfare in a high altitude (4 to 6 miles), sub-zero frigid environment; perform precise technical tasks in confined, unheated spaces, with life maintained by an oxygen tube.
Interwoven with feelings of creeping anticipation, dread, panic, and often boredom of high altitude warfare, Particles In A Stream D-Day And After also presents the humorous side of combat flying and everyday life on the bomber bases in England. The men often relied on humor as the tonic for stress and fatigue. The "particles in a stream" in the title refers to WWII as the war of "small teams" men of other military branches who no doubt felt the same way the longer they fought together "

""The opening in the chain link fence near the railroad tracks is exactly big enough to crawl through. Wooden trolley tracks in the wide open fields invite walking. A thrill of pleasure from the sunny summer warmth and the wild grass and flowering weeds between the tracks and the happiness of privacy and the great freedom propel me easily down the ladder-like path. For some mysterious reason I am living with strangers. There are other little children in the household, so playing makes each long day heady with intense emotion... but now there is joyous isolation, solitary freedom." " (Chapter One opening)
In charming narrative, Naomi Lavori tells of her early life and the perplexing relationship with her flamboyant and eccentric mother. Somehow, understanding and acceptance are gained in the final years of her mother's life. When at last we share the secrets kept hidden deep within ourselves, we are able to embrace our unique journeys with compassion and appreciation.
