President Ziaur Rahman holds a unique distinction to make the historic declaration of the Independence of Bangladesh. He then led the glorious liberation war to victory in 1971, and then became the maker of modern Bangladesh in 1975-1981. He succeeded where Sheikh Mujibur Rahman failed, both as a political leader and as an administrator. In view of his crucial role at the time of the creation of Bangladesh and thereafter, President Zia was perhaps the most phenomenally popular figure of his country. His short life of forty-five years was like an intense flare of incandescent light. Even after forty-two years since his assassination by some deviant army officers, with Indian instigation and insinuation, Zia remains irreplaceable; his void unfillable. His character, nobility and dignity could perhaps be matched only by his wife, the great and glorious Begum Khaleda Zia, who would later be a three-time Prime Minister. Both being the most famed and famous, both are/were almost equally legendary not only in their amazing and enormous popularity but also in their achievements and their sacrifice for the cause of the nation. Beside the devilish and dastardly actions of torture and terror by Sheikh Hasina and her corrupt-to-the-core fascist regime, Zia’s and Begum Zia’s accomplishments, together with their sufferings, stand out as bright as the solar shine of the day. In contrast with Hasina’s politics of destruction, oppression and repression, Zia’s and Begum Zia’s patriotic deeds and ideals continue to remain in the limelight as William Blake’s tiger “burning bright/In the forests of the night.” President Zia saved Bangladesh at least twice. He rescued the nation by making the clarion call for the independence of Bangladesh on 26 March 1971, when the political leadership failed to respond to the trust the people reposed on them. The declaration was followed by Zia’s role as an effective organizer of war and a liberation war hero. The second time was in early November 1975, when the nation plunged into chaos and confusion by the India-instigated conspiracy crushed by the army-people uprising. A group of patriotic soldiers rescued General Zia from custody and restored his authority. He rose to the occasion to save the nation during this crisis time. Zia’s stewardship and statesmanship grew through the years of his rule and professional career. He was a successful sector commander, deputy chief of the army, chief of the army, and, finally, the most successful president with a track record of unprecedented contributions. He was a “large, sweet soul” and “the sweetest, wisest soul of all [our] days and lands,” as President Abraham Lincoln was to American poet Walt Whitman. Like Lincoln, who was also assassinated at the age of 56, following a civil war, Zia also was, “The great star early droop’d. O powerful western fallen star!” This book is a great collection of writings about a great President by a number of notable authors and scholars, who place President Zia highly in the annals of the country’s formation and political development. It is an effort to contribute to the nationalist narrative with accuracy and objectivity. Highly readable and worth reading, the volume is a landmark publication in the political history of Bangladesh that all concerned will find interesting and informative.

An Introduction to Crime and Crime Causation is a student-friendly textbook that defines and explains the concepts of crime, criminal law, and criminology. Ideal for a one-semester course, the book compares and contrasts early criminal behavior and today’s modern forms of crime. It also explores society’s responses to criminal behavior in the past and in the present day. It covers both major and lesser-known crime causation theories and their impact on society. Topics covered include: The importance of understanding crime data The goals of punishment The history of criminology, including the influence of social Darwinism on early trait theorists Crime causation theories, including a comparison of mainstream and critical theories The relationship between crime and biology, including the influence of genetics, substance use, and mental illness The social structural approach to crime, including a consideration of the changing contexts of urban criminality The nature and function of the justice system at the local, state, and federal levels, and basic categories of crimes Drug trafficking crimes, drug court efforts, and perceived weaknesses in current antidrug efforts Each chapter begins with a set of objectives and concludes with a summary. Interactive questions promote classroom discussion and practicum sections facilitate contextual learning. Drawn from different and distinct backgrounds, the authors each have unique perspectives on crime, making for a particularly well-rounded text that explores crime from several angles. The book attempts to educate readers in the development of new insights on crime and crime causation and provides a greater understanding of the steps that need to be taken before a significant reduction in crime can occur.

This book presents a study of street children’s involvement as workers in Bangladeshi organised crime groups based on a three-year ethnographic study in Dhaka. The book argues that ‘mastaans’ are Bangladeshi mafia groups that operate in a market for crime, violence and social protection. It considers the crimes mastaans commit, the ways they divide labour, and how and why street children become involved in these groups. The book explores how street children are hired by ‘mastaans’, to carry weapons, sell drugs, collect extortion money, commit political violence and conduct contract killings. The book argues that these young people are neither victims nor offenders; they are instead ‘illicit child labourers’, doing what they can to survive on the streets. This book adds to the emerging fields of the sociology of crime and deviance in South Asia and ‘Southern criminology’.

Experts examine censorship, surveillance, and resistance across Asia, from China and India to Malaysia and the Philippines. A daily battle for rights and freedoms in cyberspace is being waged in Asia. At the epicenter of this contest is China—home to the world's largest Internet population and what is perhaps the world's most advanced Internet censorship and surveillance regime in cyberspace. Resistance to China's Internet controls comes from both grassroots activists and corporate giants such as Google. Meanwhile, similar struggles play out across the rest of the region, from India and Singapore to Thailand and Burma, although each national dynamic is unique. Access Contested, the third volume from the OpenNet Initiative (a collaborative partnership of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk School of Global Affairs, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and the SecDev Group in Ottawa), examines the interplay of national security, social and ethnic identity, and resistance in Asian cyberspace, offering in-depth accounts of national struggles against Internet controls as well as updated country reports by ONI researchers. The contributors examine such topics as Internet censorship in Thailand, the Malaysian blogosphere, surveillance and censorship around gender and sexuality in Malaysia, Internet governance in China, corporate social responsibility and freedom of expression in South Korea and India, cyber attacks on independent Burmese media, and distributed-denial-of-service attacks and other digital control measures across Asia.

This book, the first historical sociology of its kind concerning Bangladesh, examines the country's what-went-wrong-syndrome during the first fifty years of its existence, 1971-2021. The work is an exception to the traditional studies on modern and contemporary Bangladesh. The study is also a post-history of united Pakistan. Busting several myths, it sheds light on many known and unknown facts about the history, politics, society, and culture of the country. Besides being a twice-born country – liberated twice, from the British in 1947 and from West Pakistanis in 1971 – it is also an artificial entity suffering from acute crises of culture, development, governance, and identity. Hashmi attributes the culture and identity crises to the demographic byproducts of bad governance. In addition to being overpopulated, Bangladesh is also resource-poor and has one of the most unskilled populations, largely lumpen elements and peasants. According to Marx, these people represent “the unchanging remnants of the past”. The second round of independence empowered these lumpen classes, who suffer from an identity crisis and never learn the art of governance. The proliferation of pseudo-history about liberation has further divided the polity between the two warring tribes who only glorify their respective idols, Mujib and Zia. Pre-political and pre-capitalist peasants’ / lumpen elements’ lack of mutual trust and respect have further plagued Bangladesh, turning it into one of the least governable, corrupt, and inefficient countries. It is essential to replace the pre-capitalist order of the country run by multiple lumpen classes with capitalist and inclusive institutions.

Every spring, the University of Massachusetts - Amherst welcomes all ''Soils Conference" Scientific Advisory Board members with open arms as we begin the planning process responsible for bringing you quality conferences year after year. With this "homecoming" of sorts comes the promise of reaching across the table and interacting with a wide spectrum of stakeholders, each of them bringing their unique perspective in support of a successful Conference in the fall. This year marks the 20^^ anniversary of what started as a couple of thoughtful scientists interested in developing partnerships that together could fuel the environmental cleanup dialogue. Since the passage of the Superfund Law, regulators, academia and industry have come to realize that models that depend exclusively on ''command and control" mandates as the operative underpinning limit our collective ability to bring hazardous waste sites to productive re-use. It is with this concern in mind that the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection privatized its cleanup program in 1993, spurring the close-out of over 20,000 sites and spills across the Commonwealth to date, in a manner that is both protective of human health and the environment while also flexible and responsive to varied site uses and redevelopment goals. So we gather together again, this year, to hear our collective stories and share success and challenges just as we share stories at a family gathering. Take a read through the stories contained in these proceedings.
