This thesis aims at exploring both cognitive (e.g. ideological) and socio-cultural factors underlying censorship in translation, particularly in translations of the taboo books. To this end, Grey Wolf Mustafa Kemal An Intimate Study of a Dictator written by H. C. Armstrong in 1932 is analyzed, placing special emphasis on the translation of the source-text excerpts that disdain or defame Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Grey Wolf Mustafa Kemal An Intimate Study of a Dictator which is the first biography written when he was alive, has drawn great reactions from Turkish society because of its content and discourse on Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. It had not been translated into Turkish for a long time. Its first Turkish translation was made in 1955.
