The missing fifth book

The Browser claims to be creating ‘a 21st century library of Writing Worth Reading’.  One of their regular features is  the interview of a renowned authority who discusses his or her area of expertise and provides their choice of the best five books to read.

I would not presume to be a renowned authority on anything.  But a blogger can have his pretensions, particularly in his blog, right?  While posting my thoughts on Naeem’s essay, it occurred to me that suppose I was asked to list five books on Bangladesh.  What would I say?
