comment:
"This handbook is not only a very useful reference tool for writers, but also presents something of a benchmark volume on the sensitive and sometimes hotly debated issue of author-publisher relations. The book aims to provide all the answers African writers will want to know about publishing, how to break into print, publishing agreements, authors′ rights, and how to find resources. The book contains contributions by many distinguished African authors writing about their experience in getting published and their relations with publishers, and there are also several articles providing the publisher′s perspective. Additionally, the book includes a vast array of practical information on, e.g. book prizes and awards, writers′ organizations, magazines, self-publishing, literary agents, book fairs and book launches, together with an annotated directory of publishers with African literature lists, resources for writers on the Internet, an author′s bookshelf, and more. The book is the outcome of an African Writers-Publishers seminar jointly organized by the African Books Collective and the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation held in Arusha, Tanzania, in February 1998. The seminar concluded with a statement issued by participants ″Arusha III. A ′New Deal between African Writers and Publishers″, which is included in the handbook." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 2507)
