The Political Thought of Tarique Rahman: Empowerment of the Grassroots People is a book published by Bangladesh Policy Forum Cambridge, a non-profit policy organization based in Cambridge.

The book is a collection of seventeen articles written on the politics and thoughts of Tarique Rahman, the Senior Vice Chairman of Bangladesh's four-time former government party Bangladesh Nationalist Party. Authors of the articles, including four editors of the book, are Bangladeshi and English academics, journalists and politicians who have either the experience of working closely with Tarique Rahman or have come to familiarize with his activities through their own works.

The book was officially launched in June 2013 at the University of Cambridge.[1][2] In August 2013, the American edition was published at Columbia University in New York City,[3] followed by the Australian, Canadian and German editions which were respectively inaugurated at the University of New South Wales, University of Toronto and University of Ulm between September and October 2013.[4][5][6]
