The magic of 10% economic growth suggests that the real income of an average citizen can double every decade into the foreseeable future. The primary obstacle to long run sustained growth in Bangladesh is land allocation. This monograph builds on the thoughts of many earlier Bangladeshi’s and proposes a concrete way of solving the current impasse. The proposal is called Compact Townships and seeks to build small, yet economic and ecologically sound, urban islands in rural Bangladesh.

This book is based on a restudy undertaken during the second half of the I 990s of a village that Kirsten Westergaard studied in 1975/76, and which she named Boringram. The period between the two studies had witnessed many changes at the policy level in Bangladesh. Over time, the ideology of socialism had been abandoned and replaced by capitalism, emphasizing liberalisation and privatisation as well as other structural adjustment reforms.

Bangladesh formally became a  member of the United Nations on 17 September 1974. But before this historic moment several scenes had been played out and many battles fought—both military and diplomatic. Finally, Bangladesh was able to establish herself as a sovereign nation. To give a glimpse of what transpired during the delay in the country attaining the UN membership, the author goes back in time and traces the political lineage of Bangladesh, from Ancient Bengal, through the Mughal and Colonial periods to her present national sovereignty.

জাতির জনক বঙ্গবন্ধু শেখ মুজিবুর রহমান- এর সম্প্রতি প্রকাশিত অসমাপ্ত আত্মজীবনী আমাদের জাতীয় রাজনীতির একটি গুরুত্বপূর্ণ আকর গ্রন্থ। এতে ১৯৪৭ সালের বিভাগ-পূর্ব বাংলা ও বিভাগ-উত্তর পাকিস্তানি শাসনের গোড়ার দিকের বঙ্গবন্ধুর জীবন ঘনিষ্ঠবিচিত্র ঘটনাবলি মূর্ত হয়েছে। নিজ নেতৃত্ব ও কর্মগুণে সমকালীন রাজনীতিকদের অনেককে ছাপিয়ে তাঁর নেতৃত্বের উত্থান ইতিহাসের এ  কালপর্বেও দেদীপ্যমান। বঙ্গবন্ধু রচিত গ্রন্থের এবং যে কালপর্বে তা পরিব্যাপ্ত, ড. হারুন-অর-রশিদ-এর একাডেমিক উৎসাহ ও গবেষণার ক্ষেত্রেও একই। বলা আবশ্যক, ঐ গ্রন্থ পাঠ থেকেই তাঁর পুনর্পাঠ গ্রন্থের সৃষ্টি।
