This revised edition of the book covers all important aspects of local government in Bangladesh, namely evolution, structure and composition, functions, finance, national-local relations, personnel administration and major issues and problems. In addition, the introductory and the concluding chapters present respectively a theoretical treatment of local government and a summary of the major trends in Bangladesh's local government system. Several annexures and a select bibliography provide useful information and guidance for further reading on the subject.
Care has been taken to cover both urban as well as rural local government. Wherever possible, international comparison has been attempted to highlight the uniqueness of the Bangladesh situation. Effort has been made to incorporate the latest information. Finally, major issues and problems of local government in Bangladesh have been highlighted in order to show the difference between de facto and de jure local government, to provoke discussions and debate and to provide hypothesis for further research in the area.
The book will, hopefully, be useful to local government practitioners, students, teachers and researchers at home and abroad.
