Notwithstanding Bangladeshs recent success in both creating a market friendly structure of economic governance and holding periodic elections, its political system continues to be marked by clientelism, rampant corruption and widespread violence. The country faces the major challenges of fostering a culture of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law as the politics of mutual distrust have re-emerged with renewed strength into a dysfunctional political landscape. This volume examines the failure of liberal democracy to take root and asks, despite the presence of a vibrant civil society, why is Bangladesh still struggling to institutionalize democracy?Providing much needed analytical context to explore the theoretical and empirical dimensions of the role of civil society in the democracy and development of Bangladesh, the volume brings together well established international authors to explore key ideas and debates from a wide range of disciplines. Through this the contributors raise intriguing questions about the prospects for liberal democracy and social development in a Muslim majority country.

`In this timely, well-informed and rigorously-researched collection, editors Fahimul Quadir and Yutaka Tsujinaka have brought together seven new contributions by new and established scholars from inside and outside Bangladesh. The chapters throw important new light on the complex relationship between civil society and democracy in Bangladesh, and readers will find the book's conclusions to be highly original, enlightening and at times challenging. Academics, policy makers and practitioners will benefit enormously from the perceptive insights that are on offer here: insights that will also have implications well beyond Bangladesh itself.'
David Lewis, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

`This book provides an exciting, path-breaking exploration of the problematic relationship between civil society, democracy and development in Bangladesh. Presenting the work of senior and junior scholars from Bangladesh, Japan, North America and the United Kingdom, the collection debunks the argument that civil society is necessarily a force for democracy, good governance and human development, let alone human security. Working with both qualitative and quantitative data, the book illuminates the analytical potential of a more comparative, case-based, in-depth approach to the varieties of civil society and the dangers of assuming its transformational capacity for advancing the post-2015 development agenda.'
Jane Parpart, University of Massachusetts Boston, USA

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
