This book is a sincere venture to bridge the generation gap. The author recollects the socio-political, academic and cultural atmosphere of Dhaka during the 1950’s and 1960’s and seeks to contrast it with the existing situation. There are strong overtones of nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ and an apparent disdain for the ‘present day violence and disorder.

The mapping of the changing historical relationships between people, lands and identities in the central tribal belt of India and in north-eastern parts of the South-Asian subcontinent, sets the context for this study's investigation of one of the world's least known minority situations. The currently muted drama of human rights violations and escalating livelihood crisis among the Adivasis in north-western Bangladesh unfolds within a sub-region of bewilderingly many and interconnected ethnic and ethno-nationalistic struggles for political recognition.

Population movement has now become a central issue in international relations. This has led to a closer examination of not only the reasons for international migration but also of the varied and mixed experiences of the migrants in the receiving state. A particular focus of such examination has been to understand the process through which international migration transforms itself into a diaspora.

The ethnic conflict in Bosnia shocked the world. Most people were taken aback that a part of Europe could return to such a degree of hatred and calculated violence indicating that the lessons of the Second World War, in particular, the ethnic cleansing of minorities and Holocaust horrors, have been ignored and that these evils are very much in the cards even today. This book is about the way the Bosnian conflict generated, the role of Britain and France in it, and above all, its lessons for Muslims the world over.
