In the past decade and a half Bangladeshi politics has undergone a dramatic shift, as it has witnessed the gradual erosion of democracy and weakening of the social cohesion. New political settlement among political actors has emerged. Institutions have decayed and radicalization of various kinds have become the norms of politics and society. Geopolitical changes and expedient politics of the incumbent have influenced the domestic politics and the country’s foreign relations. 
More Than Meets the Eye examines these developments and offers incisive explanation with hints of the future direction. It documents the pathway of the past decades and contextualizes them within the broad trends since the independence of the country 50 years ago. Written in a lucid and accessible language, the book’s analyses are theoretically grounded and empirically supported. 
This book is a must-read for observers of Bangladeshi politics, academics of Bangladesh studies, policymakers at home and abroad as well as wide audience with interests on Bangladesh.
