Title Review

This book compares the hopes of Bangladesh at the time of its independence in 1971 with the reality that exists today. Acknowledging the country’s accomplishments, it shows how the aspirations and potential of Bangladeshi people have been thwarted by a fragile political and administrative system.

It further identifies the underlying conditions that have shaped the country’s post-independence institutions, processes and leadership. Also, it addresses a variety of issues pertaining to the political instability in the country, the persistence of conflict and confrontation, the flourishing of self-interest approaches to policy matters, and the functioning of parliamentary government.
