Boringram Revisited
Persistent Power Structure and Agricultural Growth in a Bangladesh Village
Kirsten Westergaard and Abul Hossain
ISBN 984 05 1703 1 2005 114p 215x136mm HB Tk.260.00 US$23.00

This book is based on a restudy undertaken during the second half of the 1990s of a village that Kirsten Westergaard studied in 1975/76, and which she named Boringram. The period between the two studies had witnessed many changes at the policy level in Bangladesh. Over time, the ideology of socialism had been abandoned and replaced by capitalism, emphasising liberalisation and privatisation as well as other structural adjustment reforms. The impacts of the reforms were mixed and varied throughout the country; and with regard to the agricultural sector, the agroecological characteristics were important factors for the success of the reforms.
Located in the Barind Tract in the northwestern part of Bangladesh, Boringram is well suited for irrigation and the cultivation of high-yielding varieties of crops, which were introduced in the area in the early 1980s. The study shows that the size of landownership had declined, but nevertheless all sections of the population had improved their standard of living, the landowners due to increased productivity of land, and the landless due to rising agricultural wages and employment in the informal sector.
While the process of pauperisation experienced in the mid- 1970s had been halted, the study also shows that in the intervening period, inequality had increased. Because of loans from NGO credit institutions and non-agricultural employment, the poor were less dependent on the landed classes, and in the economic sphere the patron-client relationships had weakened. These changes, however, had little impact on the political sphere. The breakdown of village unity witnessed in the 1970s had accelerated, and the traditional institutions had broken down. Although the villagers had no trust in the traditional leaders, there was no challenge to their leadership, and the local power structure persisted.

Kirsten Westergaard holds a degree in political science from the University of Copenhagen. She witnessed the independence of Bangladesh in 197 1, and since then she has been a frequent visitor to the country. She has undertaken a number of studies on the state as well as the rural areas and gender issues in Bangladesh. She is presently attached to the Danish Institute for International Studies.

Abul Hossain holds a Ph.D in Political Sociology from the University of Dhaka. He has undertaken a number of research projects on local power structure, local governance, governance and social trends, land questions and peasant movements. He is currently working as a Research Fellow at the Power and Participation Research Centre, Dhaka.
