There's not too many.

If you want to read about the history of Bangla language (Bangla is at least 1100 years old) and linguistics in general, Humayun Azad has written a few accessible books. They are very entertaining if you are Bangla grammar and spelling nut like me.

If you want to read the history of Dhaka, Muntasir Mamun is THE man.

There are many pedantic history books out there I am sure. And I have read quite a few of them when I was in high school. I am sure there are books by West Bengal writers.
