This paper sets out to review what transpired in the twelve years since the first Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation Seminar on the Development of Autonomous Publishing Capacity in Africa, which was held in Arusha, Tanzania, in April 1984, and to answer a number of questions leading to the determination of whether autonomous publishing capacity in Africa has been enhanced or not; what can and should be done to improve the situation so as to make African publishing not only viable commercially but also responsive to the needs of a liberating education and culture as the 20th century comes to a close. To start with, it may be useful to summarise the broad consensus of participants in the 1984 seminar on the African publishing situation as it existed then and the recommendations that emerged therefrom.
