    The author has presented an unbiased view on the Bengal Borderland issues and sincerely tried to list a few possible solutions to those. The best thing about the book is that it presents a lot of data from various different resources. In general, these data are very difficult to gather independently, since both Indian and Bangladesh resources are a bit biased on whatever they write on. The author covered all contentious issues in a scholerly manner and from and humanitarian point of view, leaving little doubt on his neutrality.
