 ABOUT THE TITLE
Torn from cloth of the same civilization the societies of India Pakistan and Bangladesh are more like one another than they are like those of any other countries. They share the same cultural and historical heritages of Islamized Hinduism and Hinduized Islam. Most Pakistanis and the vast majority of Bangladeshis belong to ethno linguistic groups that are also Indian. Yet over the past fifty years of independent statehood parliamentary democracy has been developing in India whereas in Pakistan it has never been more than a masquerade and its players in Bangladesh have yet to understand it as other then a zero-sum game. Why? This book is an effort to suggest some answers. It is largely a work of synthetic scholarship. Much of the data in it is known or readily available. Only their combination into a coherent argument is original to this synthesis. Like most attempts to answer complex questions this book takes the form of a proposition an argument. The answers it provide are certainly not definitive. But they are substantial. AUTHOR S ACKNOWLEDGMENTS To sub continental friends colleagues and even perfect strangers for their patience and guidance my debts are staggering. Among those to whom I am most indebted but who I hasten to add are in no way responsible for what I have made of my debts are the following. In India as ever my dear friend and colleague Ravinder Kumar. My notion of coalitions of dominant classes emerged from a conversation with Barun De then of the Maulana Abul Kalam Institute of Asian Studies Calcutta. Over the Wagah Crossing in Lahore I have on several occasions been the recipient of Akmal Hussain s great generosity of mind and spirit. Sajjad Nasir and his Political Science colleagues at the University of Punjab Lahore were most helpful as was Rafique Ahmad of the university s Centre for South Asian Studies. My thanks also to Hamid A K Rai and his colleagues in the Political Science Department at Government College Lahore. Najjam Sethi Arif Nizami of The Nation and Athar Masood and his colleagues at Jang were also helpful. On the other side of the subcontinent I have debts to Cristoper Kenna then First Secretary of the Australian High Commission for his help and hospitality. The eminent development economist Rehman Sobhan and Talukder Maniruzzaman Kamal Ahmed and their colleagues in the Political Science Department at Dhaka University have been some of my tutors in Bangladeshi politics past and present. Other tutorials came from Mabub Ullah Muzaffer Ahmed M Mufakharul Islam Anisuzzaman and members of the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies particularly Atiur Rahman and Bimal Kumar Saha.
