DHAKA TOTEM

20.00

By VV AA Publisher

A subjective guide book on the capital city of Bangladesh by a group of local and international architects, planners and artists.

“Dhaka Totem is an enigma at first sight but appears discernible as one browses through the pages. It is eclectic providing heterogeneous mix but worthy of its name Totem’ focusing on Dhaka’s lineage. This book is a good read for the students of Urban and Regional Planning and other comparable disciplines who will draw a lot of interesting facts and perceptions which will be useful in preparing a Masters or Doctoral dissertation on issues of Dhaka.”

Readers reviews

The first reaction when holding this book on Dhaka is the surprise of its texture. The softness of the cardboard cover is attractive, and that quality gets potentiated by the handy size of the publication, as well as its flexibility. Indeed, one has the impression of holding a kind of manual with all the information required to prepare a trip to such an amazing city.

The content is rich in information and, what is even more valuable, descriptive of memorable experiences. This makes the book to be as essential for an adventure equal to a Swiss pocketknife.

… Yes, I know about our situation. Still, this book is a good way to “travel” to Dhaka during these times of pandemic.

This book is an enigma at first sight but appears discernible as one browses through the pages. It is eclectic providing heterogeneous mix but worthy of its name Totem’ focusing on Dhaka’s lineage. It could have been called Dhaka Totem Pole’ but the contents, if I call it a pole or pillar, are carved and painted with totemic issues representing Dhaka but not in the `Family–lineage’ fashion. This book is a good read for the students of Urban and Regional Planning and other comparable disciplines who will draw a lot of interesting facts and perceptions which will be useful in preparing a Masters or Doctoral dissertation on issues of Dhaka.
