Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis examines the current state of the publishing industry in Tunisia in order to understand the nature of writing and publishing in an international context. In discovering the publishing procedure, I have included information on how books are used in education, homes, and libraries as well as the roles of newspapers, government, and booksellers. All these aspects help determine the driving forces behind any publishing industry such as, supply, demand, cultural attitudes, and accessibility of knowledge. My research was conducted primarily using standard library research procedures, which were then anchored by several interviews with professionals involved with publishing in Tunisia. This study presents an overview of publishing techniques and factors contributing to problems and/or successes within the industry. After considering these factors, I assert that publishers provide inadequate financial support to authors as a result of plummeting public demand for printed literary works. Additionally, increasing government interference through direct and indirect censorship of both the content and availability of books significantly hinders the growth of the industry and the cultural diversity of written works produced and sold within Tunisia.
