'This is a well-researched book that will be of use to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as to researchers whose work involves South Asia in general or Bangladesh in particular. The book is well organised and clearly argued. It is divided into consumable segments for those interested in a specific topic, though the author has also stitched a coherent and persuasive narrative from these parts ... This book addresses the need for a political economy informed analysis of Bangladesh. It delivers a strong basis for anyone interested in this overused character, providing readers with a clear path to what would otherwise take years of reading, research and analysis.'
