The issues of literacy and illiteracy have made their presence felt in every country of the world. Anyone who has explored these issues quickly comes to understand that, because the acquisition of basic literacy is no longer enough, these concerns may never go away entirely. This bibliography is conceived as a starting point for continued research and study in the areas of literacy and illiteracy. Chapter one deals with international and national research in literacy. The international research section is subdivided into sections pertaining to cross-cultural, cross-national, world literacy, and world regional research in literacy. The national research section lists countries alphabetically with the United States being further subdivided into general and state-by-state sections. Illiteracy and UNESCO and literacy in the third world are the subjects of chapters two and three respectively. Cross-referencing is provided by author and subject indexes. This volume provides much-needed access to information on literacy and illiteracy for teaching, research, and planning purposes.
