Development Issues of Bangladesh-II

Development Issues of Bangladesh-II
Edited by Ashraf Ali, Ruhul Kuddus and Syed Saad Andaleeb
Published jointly by BDI and UPL (University Press Limited), Dhaka, Bangladesh (in April, 2003)
 
The book contains articles from a variety of disciplines held together by a common thread: socio-economic development of Bangladesh.  The articles are grouped together by their disciples such as political science, social science, science and technology and economics.  The contributing authors engage in systematic discussions on country's political and constitutional issues, causes of poverty and underdevelopment, corruptions and governance.  A number of articles deal with the status and prospects of fisheries, water resources, informal and higher education, and steel and engineering technology, while others focus on monetary and banking policies, privatization and effects and implications of globalization.
The book contains data, analysis and policy directions on current issues affecting Bangladesh�s politics, industry, education, economy and so on.  Whereas the book is not intended to provide a fully coordinated set of policy prescriptions on current issues, the articles in the book do point to a common set of problems facing Bangladesh such as the domination of rent-seeking class and associated corruption, political instability and violence, lack of well-coordinated economic policies for industrialization, parasitic education system, etc.  The solutions suggested in the articles are based on in-depth, objective and comparative analysis of the subject matter and should prove useful to the policy makers and development practitioners.
