Social Formation in Dhaka City

In recent years, urban sociology, examining Third World metropolises, has attracted the attention and interest both of academies and policy makers, especially because of the increasing pressures of population growth, poverty and environmental degradation. Social Formation in Dhaka City, is therefore, a
welcome and timely addition to the growing body of empirical research in this extremely important field.

Divided into eight chapters, the book is a pioneering work both in content and methodology. Thus, for the first time, we have a book On present day Dhaka city that (a) analyses the salient characteristics of its major classes and groups of people and places them in a historical perspective, (b) delineates their inter- relationships and interactions, and (c) identifies the change agents amongst them. In conducting this study, the authors not only combined several surveys with other research methods, but also made innovations, where necessary. There is no doubt that this book challenges conventional wisdom, shatters myths, raises controversies and contributes a new body of knowledge on contemporary Dhaka city. It is precisely for this reason that this book will be useful for urban sociologists, policy makers, change agents and general readers interested in Third World urban social formations.

An economist and a civil servant, Kamal Siddiqui was educated at Dhaka, Leeds and London Universities. He has published a large number of books and articles on land reforms, rural poverty, local government, rural development and peasant movements.

Sayeda Rowshan Qadir studied political science at Dhaka University and rural sociology at Cornell University. She has to her credit a number of publications, including a book on slum dwellers and squatters of Dhaka city. Her areas of interest include women and development, local government and rural development.

Sitara Alamgir studied economics at Dhaka and Boston Universities. She has published several articles in the field of local government finance and urban civic amenities.

A sociologist, Sayeedul Huq was trained at Dhaka University and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen. His areas of interest are local government and rural development in a comparative framework.
