Bangladesh is an inquiry into the pathways to Bangladeshi nationhood and the formative years of the country under Sheikh Mujib. Situating the subject matter in the broader context of the Division of Bengal in 1905, the partition of British India in 1947, and the disintegration of Pakistan in 1971, the study argues that many of the fiercely debated issues of contemporary Bangladesh can be traced to three major phases in the nation's development: the struggle against external colonialism-which eventually led to the partition of British India; the struggle against internal colonialism-which not only shattered the foundation of Pakistan's religion-based nationalism, but also led to the disintegration of the nation itself; and the post-liberation state formation-when the Mujib regime vacillated between socialist and market-oriented principles in the economic arena and overplayed the supremacy of the party over the nation in the political realm.
