Karachi

£7.99

Product description

Two hundred years from its founding as the port of Sindh and fifty years from its position as the only port of Pakistan, Karachi has an undisputed place in the economy of the country and in the affections of its citizens. The glowing capital of Sindh is loved in spite of its glaring shortcomings. In the imagination of its people it stands for a lifestyle that is at once modern and yet more leisured than the frenetic megacities elsewhere. The citizens of this megacity are capable of dealing with their problems. Karachi is a new city but it is old in its wisdom and tolerance. Above all it is a cosmopolitan city which demands civilized attitudes from its most unruly citizens. It is this mainstream Karachi that this book is about. Karachi - Megacity of Our Times is the story of transformation of a sleepy town of under twenty thousand people into a vibrant metropolis-one of the largest in Asia today.

Very good condition.
