    This book provides information on the past nearly 200 years (1831-2010) of Bengali history in a very concise manner. The writer also showed in various angles in his book that he can produce it to be very comprehendible language. The book has provided much evidence to support his subjects’, and also has interviewed many politicians; writers and senior citizens who were present at that time and he also analised many historical books, documents, news papers, Journals, periodicals, letters and leaflets. About our community most of the historians have written from their own point of view, some of them were economical to the truth because of their own perception towards others. Faruque Ahmed has written the book to try and show why Bengali politics was introduced in Britain and how successful it was. Personally, I like this book because this writer did not want to prove that he was a policy maker at that time, neither that he was a leader. I was told there was some vital information that... More > should’ve been there but unfortunately he was ill informed by historians, or maybe I was ill informed by historians which should’ve been in the book. Recently I was reading about someone’s thesis who has done her thesis about the same subject as Faruque Ahmed’s book. I spoke to her a few weeks ago, her name is Sarah Glynn. Dr. Glynn, currently working as a senior lecturer in human geography at the University of Edinburgh. She is specialised in multiculturalism and Bengal politics in Britain. Her PhD, from University College London, looked at the political mobilisation of immigrants in the London's East End. I asked about her thesis subject and her research, she said to me, “unfortunately nobody has written about Bengal politics in Britain in English language. Whoever has written it is in Bengali, I have taken interviews, and also I have interviewed the Bengali senior citizens who played a part in Bengali politics in UK.” I mentioned to her that your thesis contradicted with Faruque Ahmed’s book called ‘Bengal Politics in Britain: Logic, Dynamics & Disharmony’. She replied, “Everybody told me their own statements; it was extremely difficult to support all evidence because nobody has written in English.” After our discussion over the telephone phone she ordered the book. I felt that someone had written a book after so long without a bias reflection, neither was he involved with any family members of politicians. Syed Zohirul Islam< Less
