Books for Developing Countries: A Guide for Enlisting Private-Industry Assistance.
Franklin Book Programs, Inc., New York, NY.
The U.S. Government has recognized that literacy, education, and the availability of books are essential for the development of a nation's human and institutional resources. This policy stresses the importance of encouraging book publishing capability in developing countries, and this pamphlet is designed to stimulate the interest of both Americans and leaders in the developing countries by indicating how publishing can be strengthened. The pamphlet specifically guides: (1) officers of the Agency for International Development and other U.S. Government agencies in ways to involve the private sector of American book publishing in implementing the national book policy overseas; (2) the U.S. publishing industry by encouraging increased interest in working with publishers in the less developed world and by helping the U.S. industry to assess opportunities to become involved; and (3) governments and publishers in the developing countries by describing the range of considerations the U.S. Government has in mind as it approaches overseas book problems and the ways in which American publishers might be able to help overcome them. Appendixes list countries in which AID is currently operating and countries or areas with investment guaranty programs. (Author/JB)
