This book is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Mahabub Hossain, a highly respected scholar and researcher who was Bangladesh's best-known expert in agricultural economics and rural development. It draws upon a commemorative volume put together by his colleagues, friends and admirers drawn from Bangladesh and other parts of South Asia. The Bangladeshi contributors have written on Bangladesh's fast changing rural context while others have written either on the Indian experience or taken a broader pan-South Asian view. The topics span a large canvas but are joined together with a common refrain around agriculture and rural development.
