This book is based on a restudy undertaken during the second half of the I 990s of a village that Kirsten Westergaard studied in 1975/76, and which she named Boringram. The period between the two studies had witnessed many changes at the policy level in Bangladesh. Over time, the ideology of socialism had been abandoned and replaced by capitalism, emphasizing liberalisation and privatisation as well as other structural adjustment reforms.

Bangladesh formally became a  member of the United Nations on 17 September 1974. But before this historic moment several scenes had been played out and many battles fought—both military and diplomatic. Finally, Bangladesh was able to establish herself as a sovereign nation. To give a glimpse of what transpired during the delay in the country attaining the UN membership, the author goes back in time and traces the political lineage of Bangladesh, from Ancient Bengal, through the Mughal and Colonial periods to her present national sovereignty.

The collapse of the weaving industry in eighteenth-century Bengal has been the subject of considerable controversy. While it has been held that the decline was caused by a stagnant system of production, historians have also argued that the problem was a symptom of colonialism, and lay in the fundamental conflict of interests between British investment in the Indian textile industry and the 'home' manufacturing groups. The present volume contributes fresh evidence and arguments to this subject.
