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.

The disintegration of Pakistan and the emergence of Bangladesh in 1971 is the sad story of the Pakistan army generals, the misconceived role as ‘guardian angles’ of national interest. After twelve years of dictatorship their plan to transfer power to the elected representatives of the people was a dismal failure and resulted in the break-up of Pakistan. The main reason for the failure to transfer power to the elected majority was the stark insincerity of General Yahya Khan, his cohorts, and the abetment of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan People’s party.

The First World War had wrought a revolution in people's ideas of equality and liberty everywhere. In India, the Home Rule agitation had heightened political awareness and ambition across the length and breadth of the country under the British Raj. The Rowlatt Bill (1919), based on the controversial recommendation of the Rowlatt Committee, was enacted to deal with acts of sedition on the lifting of the Defense of India Act after the war. This was the backdrop when Philip Finney joined the Bengal Police in 1924.

During the first four decades of the twentieth century the Bengali Muslim quest for identity among middle class was the most descernible aspect of the social development of the community. The actual process started during the last quarter of the nineteenth century, and was shaped in the hands of the nascent middle class intelligentsia. For them it had became difficult to choose a right course of action amidst perplexing varieties of mutually contradictory ideas.
