Product Specification & Summary

"Power is everywhere; not because it embraces everything, but it comes from everywhere."
-Michel Foucault
It is worth noting that the renowned writer, critic, translator and academic has returned to his ever-loved arena of writing after a long hibernation. He's been honored by his readers and distinguished friends for his writings. His writing style and contents are unique revolving to contemporary literary and political issues like nationalism, social violence, sexuality, power, media and its role on shaping the social psyche. His other research areas are varied and of different nature like Child abuse and Literary movements (also how the political/social movements influence and impact on our literature) since the then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) to present day. His writings demand the deepest attention of our consciousness when we readers are gradually becoming the inhabitants of the "Land of Nod." Dr. Quader has analyzed complex social and literary problems with the compass of many noted theorists and political philosophers. His incisive mind and analysis shed new radiance on the reading minds. He has analyzed how the pervasiveness of Power exercising by the state apparatus destroys 'social power' with the violence on a daily basis while he questioned citing Foucault's writing, "Isn't it the Bangladesh case that in 'normal' situation power is located in the hands of the state apparatus and its various branches rather than spread throughout society?" Sometimes answer doesn't a matter, but quests are significant features as that raise the inner sight to evaluate the phenomenon to a great extent. Now-a-days anti-social activities like gang-rape, child abuse, terrorist activities and many other ills are spreading in a multi-dimensional form. Dr. Quader has argues how all these are interrelated where the rule of law remains invisible or absent and the so called 'democracy' validates the " elected dictatorship." Most of his essays of this book and his efforts focused on analyzing the socio-political issues from a global intellectual context.
