The article focuses on the Parisian publishing house L'Harmattan. With regard to Africa, the members of L'Harmattan's editorial board have always been guided by an unequivocal support for the self-determination and ideological independence of third-world peoples. The publishing house has never wanted to become identified with a single ideological current or a particular political stance, even though it has always been regarded as a militant enterprise. Of the 1,830 books listed in L'Harmattan's 1990 catalogue, 1,513 had been published by the firm itself, and 317 were being advertised for other companies.
