Bertocci, Peter J., Comp.
A list of descriptive scholarly works relevant to Bangladesh are compiled in an introductory bibliography for nonspecialist users that describes essential aspects of Bangladesh's history, society, and culture. History is emphasized, but the listing also includes documents about social/cultural anthropology, sociology, demography, economics, political science, and geography. The development of Pakistan from 1947 to 1971 is covered as an historical perspective, but literature dealing with the Asian Crisis of 1971 and the emergence of Bangladesh is excluded. Section titles of the bibliography are (1) Historical Background to Modern Bangladesh society; (2) Society, Culture, and Political Economy in Bangladesh Today: Background Materials; (3) Ethnographic and Other Materials on the Non-Bengali Tribal Groupings in Bangladesh; (4) Traditional Culture, Literature, and the Arts: Selected Titles Available in English; and (5) Scholarly Journals and News Periodicals Regularly Carrying Articles on Bangladesh: English Language. Items in each section are listed alphabetically by author under subsection headings. (Author/ND)
