Books are essential to every process of education, information, creativity and development. They are also an instrument for dialogue and a key tool in building democracy and social and intercultural communication. Last but not least, books are the irreplaceable medium of that pleasure of reading which captivates millions of human beings of all ages every day, in both the North and the South, throughout the world. With their noblest of missions and many tasks, books are central to the great effort that goes into increasing their role in the life of societies, especially societies in developing countries. Books are works of the mind which, through the variety of their contents and different forms of human expression, feed our shared intellectual heritage in all its diversity.
