Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi
I once visited such a place under construction in Karachi, Pakistan. Electricity came from cables illegally hooked to the nearest power lines. Drinking water came not from plumbing but from delivery trucks. And the children told me they were not attending any school. Millions of people in the developing world live in communities like this, without security, infrastructure or other tangible evidence of the state.
In recent decades, the world has seen an unprecedented shift of people from the countryside into cities. As Steve Inskeep so aptly puts it, we are now living in the age of the "instant city," when new megacities can emerge practically overnight, creating a host of unique pressures surrounding land use, energy, housing, and the environment. In his first book, the co-host of Morning Edition explores how this epic migration has transformed one of the world's most intriguing instant cities: Karachi, Pakistan. Karachi has exploded from a colonial port town of , in to a sprawling metropolis of at least 13 million today. As the booming commercial center of Pakistan, Karachi is perhaps the largest city whose stability is a vital security concern of the United States, and yet it is a place that Americans have frequently misunderstood. As Inskeep underscores, one of the great ironies of Karachi's history is that the decision to divide Pakistan and India along religious lines in only unleashed deeper divisions within the city-over religious sect, ethnic group, and political party.

In recent decades, the world has seen an unprecedented shift of people from the countryside into cities. Karachi has exploded from a colonial port town of , in to a sprawling metropolis of at least 13 million today. As Inskeep underscores, one of the great ironies of Karachi's history is that the decision to divide Pakistan and India along religious lines in only unleashed deeper divisions within the city-over religious sect, ethnic group, and political party. As he discovers, the bombing is in many ways a microcosm of the numerous conflicts that divide Karachi, because people wondered if the perpetrators were motivated by religious fervor, political revenge, or simply a desire to make way for new real estate in the heart of the city. Despite the violence that frequently consumes Karachi, Inskeep finds remarkable signs of the city's tolerance, vitality, and thriving civil society-from a world-renowned ambulance service to a socially innovative project that helps residents of the vast squatter neighborhoods find their own solutions to sanitation, health care, and education. Drawing on interviews with a broad cross section of Karachi residents, from ER doctors to architects to shopkeepers, Inskeep has created a vibrant and nuanced portrait of the forces competing to shape the future of one of the world's fastest growing cities..
It is a roving, at times whimsical narrative telling certain stories that follow, intersect or run alongside each other. It winds through selected places, events, and people, revisits some of them, keeps going, and comes back for more. With this approach, Instant City: Life andDeath in Karachi only honors the nature of this megalopolis. Partof the problem in writing about Karachi is its enormity. For him an "instant city" is one that has grown significantly faster than the country it belongs to since the end of World War II. Karachi, with its 13 million people — an estimate for based on a census carried out in , and one that is considerably lower than others as high as 18 million — is at least 30 times as populated as it was in , two years before the partition of British India brought hundreds of thousands of Muslims pouring into the city and turned Karachi into an enduring magnet for Pakistanis from other parts of the country.
