Bangladesh's present and pasts

Late Friday, July 1st gunmen stormed an upscale cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh killing 21 hostages and two police officers over the following ten hours. One student from UC Berkeley (Tarishi Jain) and two students from Emory University (Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain) were among the dead. This attack followed on the heels of other attacks in Bangladesh targeting religious minorities and progressives. Apart from such atrocities becoming "news" around the world, Bangladesh is not on most people's radars. 

For those of you who want to gain an understanding of Bangladesh, its history, and the struggle of its people the following is meant to serve, not as a comprehensive resource guide, but as a brief introduction.

The Frank L. Kovacs Numismatic Library, undoubtedly one of the largest and most complete reference collections on ancient numismatics situated on the West coast of the U.S., is now housed at the Stanford Libraries and was immediately put to use by students and a visiting professor throughout spring-quarter seminars.
