Summary

With the intention of illuminating the many obstacles involved with literacy promotion in the developing nations of Africa, Asia, and South America, the authors of the 10 articles in this collection share their knowledge and experience of literacy promotion in the developing world--including the unique challenges faced by those who publish, print, and distribute reading materials with limited support and resources. The articles also offer suggestions and solutions for increasing the developing world's access to quality indigenous reading materials. Following an introduction, the articles and their authors are: (1) "Reading in Developing Countries: Problems and Issues" (Vincent Greaney); (2) "Lifting Literacy Levels in Developing Countries: Some Implications from an IEA Study" (Warwick B. Elley); (3) "Research Foundations to Support Wide Reading" (Richard C. Anderson); (4) "Textbooks in Developing Countries" (Joao Oliveira); (5) "Developing Local Publishing Capacity for Children's Literature" (Tony Read); (6) "Promoting Independent Reading: Venezuelan and Colombian Experience" (Nelson Rodriguez-Trujillo); (7) "Promoting Children's Book Publishing in Anglophone Africa" (Scott Walter); (8) "Using Book Floods to Raise Literacy Levels in Developing Countries" (Warwick B. Elley); (9) "Donated Book Programs: An Interim Measure" (Rosamaria Durand and Suzanne M. Deehy); and (10) "Libraries and Literacy in Developing Countries" (Rebecca Knuth and others). (NKA)
