Bangladesh is one of the least developed countries in the World. The great majority  of  its people depend on agriculture for earning their living. Despite planned efforts by the government to increase agricultural productivity for more than three decades, the growth and output in this sector has not kept pace with the growth of population. This is a matter of great concern for the people as well as the policy makers of the country.

After decades of stagnation, Bengali agricultural output finally began to grow faster than the population from the mid-1980s onwards. While this achievement has been widely heralded, there has been no effort to analyse in detail the reasons for and the consequences of agrarian change in the region. Providing a unique interdisciplinary synthesis, this volume— which draws chiefly upon micro studies of villages in West Bengal and Bangladesh—explores the complex causality between agricultural growth, government policy and local level practice, and agrarian social change.

In the past decade, militant Hindu nationalism has emerged as a dominant political force in India, and it looks set to stay in the absence of a credible challenge from centrist and Left parties. The pursuit of an exclusivist agenda of ‘cultural nationalism’ (Hindutva) by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Shiv Sena, and an assortment of other groups, that comprise the Sangh Parivar’, is seen as a threat to India’s pluralist traditions.

The book is about the identity politics in a post-colonial society that motivated the Bengali Muslims to participate in Bangladesh’s independence movement. Its approach is a major departure from the traditional analysis which tends to suggest that nationalist movement is a non contradictory political movement. To the contrary, the book argues, like all other social movements, the nationalist movement responds to restructuring the power relation in a society.

How violence and terrorism impact on societies has largely been ignored in mainstream security studies. However, in the post-cold war order, endemic violence has become part of life of people across the world, more so in South  Asia. Within the current debates in security studies and efforts to make security conceptions more people-centred, the issue of violence finds some primacy.
