Pakistan's first military ruler, Mohammad Ayub Khan, was born in 1907, in the village of Rehana, near Haripur. In 1951, he became the country's first Pakistani Commander-in-Chief, and subsequently served as defence minister in the second cabinet of Mohammad Ali Bogra. On declaration of martial law by Iskander Mirza on 7 October 1958, he was made the chief martial law administrator. Less than three weeks later, after deposing Iskander Mirza in a bloodless coup, Ayub Khan became the president of Pakistan on 27 October 1958.

১৯৬৯ সালের পূর্ব বাংলা। কী এক জীবনস্পর্ধী মন্ত্রের মুখে বিস্ফোরিত চারদিক। কেঁপে ওঠে নগর ঢাকা। কাঁপে শহর, বন্দর, গঞ্জ, নিভৃত গ্রাম, এমনকি যমুনার দুর্গম চর এলাকা। কখনো কঠিন বুলেটের আঘাতে, কখনো ঘুম-ভেঙ্গে-দেওয়া আঁধির ঝাপটায়। মিটিং আর মিছিল আর গুলিবর্ষণ আর কারফ্যু-ভাঙ্গা আর গণআদালত - সব জায়গায় ফেটে পড়ে ক্ষোভ ও বিদ্রোহ। সব মানুষেরই হৃদয়ের অভিষেক ঘটে একটি অবিচল লক্ষ্যে - মুক্তি।

The short but stormy life of Bangladesh presents questions which have a far wider relevance. Was its secessionist birth the outcome of ever-latent nationalism or failure of political management or just Indian armed force? How could its charismatic founder leader fall by assassination in the fourth year of his reign? What made democratic urges culminate in military rule?

Since the middle of the nineteenth century, the need for a social revolution has been felt and talked about by the middle class in Bengal. But, ironically, it was the middle class itself that has hindered the revolution. The state has changed in size and name but not in character, indicating that relationships within society have remained basically as they were before. This book examines the double role of the Bengali middle class. Middle class's participation in politics and achievements in the fields of education, literature and culture have been remarkable.

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.
