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.

This book asks whether the corruption prevalent is not often deliberately caused by the donor agencies themselves. Civil society and aid agencies have persistently and widely trumpeted rampant corruption within the bureaucracy and political bodies in the Third World as the primary obstacle to sustainable development but the central role of donors in this matter has not been carefully analysed. This issue is thus a radically new addition to the literature on development.

The role of water in a rice economy such as Bangladesh is of such overwhelming importance that one would be hard-pressed to overemphasize it. In order for there to be effective democratic decision making the people need to be informed. And yet one is struck by the fact that there are no readily available texts on the history of economies of the subject---- and the few books that are available are reactions to the water projects that have been proposed or have been undertaken.

Bangladesh, a low income country, has lately been successful in accelerating the rate of economic growth. There is a special significance for Bangladesh to make the transition to the middle income country (MIC) status. Not only does it imply that Bangladesh can sustain and perhaps escalate the growth rate and thus, can achieve “growth-mediated” development with active public policies, but it also strengthens self-confidence and elicits recognition and respect from other countries and institutions.

Bangladesh is a unitary state with “Westminster model” of governance, but the reality for governance is complex with a plethora of actors both at the national and international levels. The state of Bangladesh has yet not been characterized by features of good governance and democratic policy making regime. Rather favoritism, patron-clientelism and lobbying (Popularly called Tadbir) are very much parts and parcel of the governance and policy making process.
