This book is destined to become the most comprehensive book on rural poverty in Bangladesh. The author reviews the methodological issues related to rural poverty and makes out a strong case for consistency and uniformity in measuring poverty. The strategies for poverty alleviation both in the public and private sectors pursued over the past twenty-five years are exhaustively and critically reviewed. Hasnat Hye's attempt at developing a theoretical framework to explain the phenomenon of mass poverty is interesting and should invite wider discussion.

Accordingly, issues of rule of law, judicial independence, equality, accountability and non-discrimination have in the past few years transcended the boundaries of legal arena and have become the focus of development discourse.

Bengali Partition of 1905 is a milestone in Bengali History which had enormous impact on subsequent history. But very few books were published on this subject. Particularly no detailed study has been published on East Bengal or present Bangladesh which was the centre of events during this important period of history. Professor Muntassir Mamoon, the pioneer on history of East Bengal came forward to fill in this void. The book is divided into three parts. In the first part the author discuses the background of the Bengal partition.

This book gives names and faces to some of the world's poorest people, the inhabitants of a Bangladesh village. Although no microcosm can perfectly mirror the whole, an in depth exploration of one place can reveal the human dimensions of the larger picture. The authors lived at Katni, a typical Bangladesh village, in a hut they built themselves to find out what life at the margin in the Third World meant.

From One to Many: Scaling Up Health Programs in Low Income Countries addresses both problems and opportunities in scaling up health programs: It gives voice to the too often unheard program implementers and articulates their rarely found details and hard-won insights about the step-by-step negotiations that determine the success or failure of bringing programs to scale. At the same time it delivers the critical analysis and the breadth of perspective of academic writers who have studied scaling up efforts across the globe.

The book also presents the situation in a wider context, by examining gender-related values and societal norms on the nature of relationships among young people. Marriage is a central pillar in the social construction of sexuality in Bangladesh.
