In the The Clash of Civilizations? Samuel P. Huntington provocatively laid down the global fault lines of the post Cold War era. Huntington sees the West as involved in an unavoidable collision with two major civilizations—Islamic and Confucian. This controversial thesis, originally published in Foreign Affairs and now developed into a book, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, is said to have generated more comments than any other  contribution to Foreign Affairs in recent times.

Adnan Morshed’s allegory of the oculus—a circular recess at the apex of a dome—as a way of seeing things from an unusual angle, with both engaged subjectivity and dispassionate distance, works well for some of the poignant developmental issues of Bangladesh. He lives away from his motherland, a detachment that he uses not for nostalgic reminiscences, but as a global citizen’s intellectual fodder for distant observations of his birthplace.

২০০৪ সালে শেখ মুজিবুর রহমানের লেখা চারটি খাতা আকস্মিকভাবে তাঁর কন্যা শেখ হাসিনার হস্তগত হয়। খাতাগুলি অতি পুরানো, পাতাগুলি জীর্ণপ্রায় এবং লেখা প্রায়শ অস্পষ্ট। মূল্যবান সেই খাতাগুলি পাঠ করে জানা গেল এটি বঙ্গবন্ধুর অসমাপ্ত আত্মজীবনী, যা তিনি ১৯৬৭ সালের মাঝামাঝি সময়ে ঢাকা সেন্ট্রাল জেলে অন্তরীণ অবস্থায় লেখা শুরু করেছিলেন, কিন্তু শেষ করতে পারেননি। জেল-জুলুম, নিগ্রহ-নিপীড়ন যাঁকে সদা তাড়া করে ফিরেছে, রাজনৈতিক কর্মকাণ্ডে উৎসর্গীকৃত-প্রাণ, সদাব্যস্ত বঙ্গবন্ধু যে আত্মজীবনী লেখায় হাত দিয়েছিলেন এবং কিছুটা লিখেছেনও, এই বইটি তার সাক্ষর বহন করছে।
