"This work is an attempt to unfold the contribution made by the great Muslim Bengalis in the independence movement of India and later in the struggle for autonomy of East Pakistan culminating in the independence of Bangladesh. I have analysed the events of the post-independence period of Bangladesh and the challenges encountered by the new nation as it enters the year 2003"--P. viii.

I wonder why the author didn't mention the name of the founder treasurer of Awami League Mr. Yar Mohammad Khan who was also the founder publisher of The Daily Ittefaq. Other than that the book provides valuable information for the people of Bangladesh.
