Publishing educational materials in Africa The economics of publishing educational materials in Africa draws on research data from a wide range of African countries.

This book is essential reading for all who care about education and the future economic viability of publishing within Africa. The diverse picture of the publishing scene in Africa which this study portrays, provides an invaluable update of current problems and approaches.
