The collapse of the weaving industry in eighteenth-century Bengal has been the subject of considerable controversy. While it has been held that the decline was caused by a stagnant system of production, historians have also argued that the problem was a symptom of colonialism, and lay in the fundamental conflict of interests between British investment in the Indian textile industry and the 'home' manufacturing groups. The present volume contributes fresh evidence and arguments to this subject.

Tagore was indeed a biswa-kabi, or poet of the world. In the first half of the twentieth century, few had travelled as much as him, visiting more than thirty countries on five continents Shying away from being a ‘patriot’ and ‘seeking compatriots around the world,’ Rabindranath laid faith in humans, no matter of what nation, race or caste, in overcoming limitations and perils of all kinds. It is this faith that made him cross boundaries, both intellectual and territorial.

This book asks whether the corruption prevalent is not often deliberately caused by the donor agencies themselves. Civil society and aid agencies have persistently and widely trumpeted rampant corruption within the bureaucracy and political bodies in the Third World as the primary obstacle to sustainable development but the central role of donors in this matter has not been carefully analysed. This issue is thus a radically new addition to the literature on development.

In order for there to be effective democratic decision making the people need to be informed. And yet one is struck by the fact that there are no readily available texts on the history of economies of the subject---- and the few books that are available are reactions to the water projects that have been proposed or have been undertaken.

Bangladesh, a low income country, has lately been successful in accelerating the rate of economic growth. There is a special significance for Bangladesh to make the transition to the middle income country (MIC) status. Not only does it imply that Bangladesh can sustain and perhaps escalate the growth rate and thus, can achieve “growth-mediated” development with active public policies, but it also strengthens self-confidence and elicits recognition and respect from other countries and institutions.

Man is endowed with self-consciousness and free will which are influenced by the forces generated in his brain and shape his individual personality. The Glory of God is revealed in the achievement of man. Scientific and technological knowledge has given man material wealth and power but religion has made him dignified, special and proud of being human. The Glory of God is also revealed in man’s struggle for Good against Evil. The book discusses the recent advances in Science which have given us enough facts for a rational approach and surer path to God.
