This issue contains those materials from a seminar on "Campaigning for Literacy" held at Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, on January 4-11, 1982, that concentrate on Asian experience. The "Udaipur Literacy Declaration," presented first, is followed by extracts from the opening addresses and a review of the report, "Campaigning for Literacy," by H.S. Bhola. The next section contains extracts with particular relevance to the Asian region from the Bhola report, which is an indepth study of eight national literacy campaigns of the 20th century. Four extracts are then provided from country papers and reports dealing with the National Adult Education Program 1978 in India, mass education in Bangladesh, current status and future prospects of literacy in Thailand, and eradication of illiteracy in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Extracts from the Bhola report on literacy movements in Vietnam, the People's Republic of China, and Burma conclude the issue. A selected bibliography is appended. (YLB)
