Subsidized books

I was going through the various books at Saqi Books, and then you see a finely produced book of writing by Thomas Jefferson.  It was translated by two people (not one), and the translation is excellent.  Now there is no market in the Arab world for Jefferson, but I come across such works in Arab publishing houses.   Are you saying that I am saying that these are subsidized books?  Is that what I am saying?
