The whole corpus of Husain’s extant writing is not available to me. However, while reading his works one after another, I developed a crescendo of admiration for the man and for his intellectual abilities and linguistic skills. Apart from his books and essays that I have read, he authored other works in Bangla and English which I suspect are comparable treasure troves of knowledge. All his works have a set of particular features and are distinctive in scope and often ground-breaking; they are contributions to our growing knowledge and understanding of the world. Hence, it may be difficult to say for certain which of his works marks his crowning achievement. However, Civilization and Society was his last book that was published during his lifetime; so it can be said with some certainty that in it he presents his most mature, polished, and carefully argued ideas. I believe readers will enjoy reading the book and corroborate my impression about it.
