Bangladesh: The Strength to Succeed looks behind the headlines to discover the reality of daily life for ordinary Bangladeshis. The problems people face do not only arise from the difficult climatic conditions: some result from the legacy of colonial exploitation, others are a consequence of a society structured to benefit a small elite at the expense of the mass of the people. Problems such as landlessness and unfair terms of trade are common to many other developing countries. The people of Bangladesh are far from passive victims, and in this book will be found the real-life stories of men and women who together are successfully resisting oppression and are determined to fight against the barriers of poverty and injustice.
