A general study was made of the organization of the book publishing industry in Communist China. First the paper reviews briefly the private industry of publishing in pre-Communist China. Next the Communist nationalization of the publishing enterprise is described. Then the author discusses the publishing of the following categories of books: works of Mao Tse-tung and other Chinese Communist leaders, belles lettres (modern and classical), history and economics, science and technology, dictionaries, popular reading materials, children's readers and specially designed books for the minority races in China. The author also discusses briefly China's translation of books from foreign countries, especially the Soviet Union and China's export of books to foreign lands. Finally the author discusses the general reading preferences among the Chinese public today and notes the popularity of classical literature. (Author).
