Bangladesh: from Mujib to Ershad : an interpretive study
This critical study of the first 20 years of Bangladesh examines Bangladesh's ethos and legacy. Lawrence Ziring traces the tragic circumstances of its emergence and the difficulties encountered in giving expression to Bengali political aspirations. In major part, the volume analyzes the performances of Bangladesh's principal leaders, who sought, Ziring argues, to articulate the sentiments of their people, but nevertheless failed the nation.
