This issue of Development Dialogue is mainly devoted to indigenous publishing in Africa, with material drawn from the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation’s second seminar on this broad theme held in Arusha, Tanzania, in March 1996—the so-called Arusha II seminar. The issue also contains the interesting correspondence between Dag Hammarskjöld and the American writer John Steinbeck which began soon after Hammarskjöld became Secretary-General of the United Nations and continued up until his death in September 1961: over 30 letters were exchanged over an eight-year period. Finally, the issue contains two addresses given in memory of Göran Ohlin and Erskine Childers, who both worked very closely with the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation for many years.
