The conditions of publishing in Nigeria and Ghana are examined in the general context of African publishing in recent decades. In both countries, school textbooks dominate the economics of publishing, attracting profit-hungry multinationals and marginalising home-grown trade publishing. Problems such as the lack of bookselling infrastructure, the underdevelopment of reading habits, and the economic necessity for African authors to secure a readership outside Africa have prompted a number of initiatives to advance the fortunes of African publishers seeking to publish African authored-books serving the needs of African readers. An effective pan-African book fair remains an important need if African publishing is to prosper.
