This is a book on the history of Bangladesh in five parts covering the period from pre-historic times of Indian civilisation to 1975. In Pundravardan the known history of Bangladesh began about 700 years later. Maurya and Gupta dynasties held their sway here. Raja Shashanka (AD 606-637) and then the Palas of Bengal (750-1155) had a glorious time. The Muslims from the north under the Ghuri, Qutub, Khilji and Tugluq dynasties ruled Bengal from 1204 and then there were independent Sultans followed by the Mughals from 1576.

This ethnography seeks to understand the connections between livelihoods, risk, capital and migration by using a framework which considers not only economic implications but more importantly, the social and cultural underpinnings of the phenomena under study. Drawing on the lived experiences, ideas, beliefs and attitude of men and women from two migration-intensive villages in Comilla, Bangladesh, the study attempts to explore the causal links between lack of security in people’s lives and livelihoods and overseas labour migration.

Epistemology or sources of knowledge has always been problematic and contentious. This is not only with reference to the issue of hegemony, when the empowered tends to impose its ‘knowledge’ on the disempowered but also with reference to the political contamination of disciplinary quests and treatment of space, which often tends to distort knowledge itself.

The power struggle that goes on in Bangladesh calls for a new consensus if the country has to achieve its politico-economic freedom.
