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.

"Of the classical elements-air, water earth, and fire - only one is symbolic of Bangladesh: water For Bangladesh is not so much a land upon water as water upon a land. One-third of Bangladesh's physical space of 55,000 square miles is comprised of water in the dry season, while in the rainy season up to 70 percent is submerged Water is the central reality of Bangladesh, just as its shortage is the central reality of Saudi Arabia.

This volume explores the experience of forty years of public administration in Bangladesh as a field of study as well as a practice. Although the latter predates the former, both have nevertheless declined over the decades. None appears to be much capable of keeping pace with developments taking place in its environment. Whatever changes have taken place in each area cannot be considered as ‘sufficient’ to deal with demands of time. The book examines the factors that account for the development and decline of public administration in Bangladesh.

Denial of basic human rights of any individual is tantamount to denying him the right to live in a civilized world. It suppresses the prospect of creativity of individuals and thus his ability to contribute in nation-building activities. The various rights, such as the right to free political thought gives a person opportunity to think and make appropriate choices towards building of institutions of public policy, which are then able to function fairly and independently.
