Abstract

"Boundaries Undermined: The Ruins of Progress on the Bangladesh-India Border." Delwar Hussain. Hurst. June 2013. --- When anthropologist Delwar Hussain arrived in a remote coal-mining village on the Bangladesh/India border to research the security fence that India is building around its neighbour, he discovered more about the globalised world than he had expected. This ethnographic study takes in sexuality, aid, and industrialisation, and is valuable for readers looking for a nuanced introduction to the complex and multiple constructions of development along the Bangladesh-India border, writes Chandni Singh.
