Abstract:

This volume highlights the role of literacy in social development and
the directions that governments and other agencies should take in
designing their literacy programmes. The contributors, who are field
workers, educational psychologists, sociologists, policy-makers, and
development studies scholars, discuss the direction of literacy policy
with regard to developing countries and marginalized segments of
developed ones.

The volume is divided into two major sections. The first examines
literacy as a social practice in what have already become 'literate
societies'. As this section makes clear, literacy development reflects
both the intrinsic structure of the society and reshapes those
activities and institutions around texts and other founding
documents. The second part examines, through carefully chosen case
studies, ongoing literacy projects, programmes and other initiatives
in developing societies in Asia, Africa and Central and South America.
