একালের ইতিহাসে সবচেয়ে উল্লেখযোগ্য বিষয় হচ্ছে, পৃথিবীর সঙ্গে পাশ্চাত্যের সংঘাত। এই সংঘাতের সঙ্গে অতীতকালের ইতিহাসের বহু ঘটনার মিল রয়েছে এবং বহু সভ্যতার সঙ্গে এই বিচিত্র সংঘাতের প্রসঙ্গ অনুসরণ করা মানবেতিহাসের এক কৌতুকপ্রদ অভিজ্ঞতা। বর্তমান জগতের বিচিত্র সমস্যাবলীর অনুধাবনকারী বিশেষজ্ঞদের মধ্যে ডক্টর টোয়েনবির দৃষ্টিভঙ্গি অভিনব ও অনন্যসাধারণ। তাঁর নিঃসীম দৃষ্টিতে স্থান কালের সীমারেখা নেই। শতাব্দী তাঁর চোখে এক দিনের মতো এবং যুগ থেকে যুগান্তরে তিনি স্বচ্ছন্দে পরিক্রমা করে বিশ্বসংস্কৃতির রূপান্তর অনুধাবন করেন, বিশ্লেষণ করেন ও বিক্ষিপ্ত উপাদানগুলো সংক্ষিপ্ত করে কার্যকারণ বের করেন, বৈচিত্র্যের

মদনজিৎ সিং দক্ষিণ এশিয়ার জন্য এক একক মুদ্রার নামকরণ করেন ‘সাশিয়া’ । তাঁর আশা যে এই মুদ্রাটি ইউরো-র মতই অর্থনৈতিক স্থিতিশীলতা আর আঞ্চলিক সহযোগিতার ক্ষেত্রে নঙ্গরসম হয়ে উঠবে। এই গ্লল্পটিতে আছে এক তরুণের প্রাণবন্ত কর্মতৎপরতা আর উৎসাহী কর্মকাণ্ডের পাশাপাশি দেশবিভাজনের পরবর্তী ঘটনাবলী ও ভারত-পাকিস্তানের মাঝে ভয়ঙ্কর ভ্রাতৃঘাতী দ্বন্দ্বের কারণে প্রচণ্ড মনোবেদনার কথা। ১৯৯৫ সালে মদনজিৎ সিং সুমিত্রা ফাউন্ডেশন (এসএফ) প্রতিষ্ঠা করেন। এই সংস্থার দারিদ্র্য দূর করা সম্ভব নয়। তারপর অত্যন্ত আকস্মিকভাবে তিনি বিপুল সম্পদের মালিক হন: তাঁর পুত্র জিৎ-এর প্রতিষ্ঠিত মার্কিন সফটওয়্যার কোম্পানীর স্

This book makes an innovative attempt to generate greater understanding about the rapid growth of Dhaka City, the deeply entrenched class hierarchy and offers a socio-economic analysis of the slum and non-slum households. It is an important departure from the existing literature in a number of ways. First, it used the latest and recognized sources of secondary materials and population estimates and projections. Second, it makes a thorough and broad-spectrum review of theories on determinants and consequences of migration.

The fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations has only recently witnessed the fact that development is still considered by the ruling governments and elites of the world as the only answer to the problems confronting the people of the Third World. By contrast, authoritative and convincing voices are heard with greater force, particularly from the grassroots, which argue that fifty years of development have only led to a new type of colonisation, even more corrosive than the old. Above all, it has exposed its target populations to a new socio-cultural variety of AIDS.

Groundwater has been the main source of water for drinking and irrigation. It is also the source of arsenic poisoning that affects millions of people in Bangladesh. Despite its importance, very little information is available in the public domain on this enigmatic resource. On the other hand, vast amounts of information exist in unpublished project reports and the like. For the first time, this book brings together the key elements of this work as well as presenting an up to date perspective on the problems and prospects for the future use of groundwater in Bangladesh.

This study is based upon the author's extensive field work among the peasants in the rural areas of Bangladesh. It deals with the problems facing the rural population due to scarcity of land and work opportunities. Different chapters take up the various ways in which ownership of land changes, and how those without land have to compete on the job market and for obtaining land on a sharecropping basis. The book describes and analyzes the various economic strategies rich and poor peasants pursue, and the complex nature of the relationship which exists between them.

This is a longitudinal study seeking to explain poverty in rural Bangladesh during the two decades between 1977 and 1997. More explicitly, the objective has been to delineate the processes within rural society which caused, aggravated, maintained and reduced poverty in a typical Bangladesh village during the above period. On both occasions, long drawn and painstaking fieldwork was undertaken within a holistic framework of analysis.

The social science and humanities have largely neglected Bangladesh. Researchers in Bangladesh are handicapped by poor government funding and a lack of incentives for doing sustained serious research. External finding has come from development circles which need appraisal and evaluation studies of many kinds.
