Book Development in National Communications and Planning.
In the developing countries of South and Southeast Asia where advancing technologies threaten the stability of traditional societies, books should be used to increase understanding and provide for a smooth transition into a modernized culture. The planning and coordinating of publishing that would serve this purpose demands changes in authorship, editing, printing capacity, paper supply, book formats, marketing, capital and talent supply, government regulation, and communications. These conclusions are based on two studies which investigated the supply of books to new readers in rural Asian countries and suggested guidelines for book development within overall national development planning. The complete texts of the studies are contained in the appendixes of the report. (EMH)
