Why are Bangladesh and the neighboring state of West Bengal the home of some of the world's poorest people when the region was once legendary for its agricultural abundance? This book explores the region's agricultural performance from 1949 to 1980 using demographic, technological, and institutional determinants. Drawing from the most up-to-date output and growth data available, the author points to drainage and flood control as the primary barrier to fulfillment of the region's great agricultural potential.
