David Hi all,

I'm new here. I am looking for a recent history book that covers recent Bangladesh history, say what Guha did with 'India after Gandhi'.

So far, I have only been able to find books on specific topics or events, like the independence war or so on.

Anybody has any recommendation ?


Jake S Hi David,

Short answer... there isn't one!

I have spent a long time looking for this sort of book as well. It may be worth reading A History of Bangladesh.

I think this political history of Bangladesh hasn't been written because there hasn't been such a consistent theme like democracy, instead the balance between some form of autocracy and democracy swinging like a pendulum.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.


Jake S It would seem I am wrong, have you looked at Bangladesh: A Political History Since Independence
