This book is a call to arms for active literary politics and serves as an introduction to cultural policy measures that currently shape literature and publishing industries in different states and regions around the world.

It argues that literary policies should be understood as part of a complex and flexible field of politics that can be identified at national, regional and international levels of governance, across several policy areas. Literary policies are based on the premise that the book and other forms of written expressions are not just commodities but have a special value to society.

This book was possible thanks to the generous support of KopinorFritt Ord and Bergesenstiftelsen.

It is also available in Epub format.
