comment:
"It has become increasingly clear to those involved in textbook projects that textbook publishing should not be isolated from book publishing in general, but should be an integral part of it. A major Conference on Textbook Provision and Library Development in Africa, which took place in Manchester in October 1991 made an attempt to contribute to that end. As a follow-up to the Manchester conference, UNESCO (118), with UNDP funding, undertook a study on Textbook Provision and the Feasibility of Cooperation among SADC countries, where national specialists and task forces conducted a systematic analysis of the strengths and difficulties within their country′s textbook provision system. The process of carrying out national case studies for five SADC countries contributed to the development and institutionalization of comprehensive and integrated policies for textbook provision, and helped in particular to identify constraints which have prevented effective textbook provision. The exercise itself was intended as a capacity building strategy. Each case study examined the mode of book provision and identified strengths and weaknesses, and brought together basic information and statistics. The exercise clearly indicated that the interaction between book industries and textbook publishing still are still inadequate in many countries." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 349)
