An Internal Matter tells the story of the many activists in America who supported the campaign for Bangladesh’s independence in 1971. Shifting attention away from diplomatic figures, this work draws upon new evidence and interviews with participants to highlight the ordinary people who challenged the Nixon administration’s pro-Pakistan stance. From the shores of Manpura and the streets of Dhaka to American living rooms and the halls of Congress, this book injects a valuable dose of social history into international conversations about the war’s legacies. In doing so, it offers a powerful new vision for international and global studies of the Liberation War: a people’s history of the mukti sangram abroad.
