  • "Identical to the other editions in its arrangement, the volume begins with a chronology from 1500 BC right up to events in the last quarter of 2009. The 36-page introduction provides an overview of the land and people, early history, Islamic rule, Pakistan period, independence, and the new democratic system. What follows is the major section, an A-Z compilation of subject and name entries important to the development of Bangladesh throughout its history. The entries run from short dictionary-like definitions to much longer ones, such as those that touch on Elections and Militancy. --from publisher description."
