Description
Karachi. Pakistan's largest city is a sprawling metropolis of twenty million people. It is a place of political turbulence in which those who have power wield it with brutal and partisan force. Samira Shackle explores the city of her mother's birth in the company of a handful of Karachiites. Shackle paints a vivid portrait of one of the most complex and compelling cities in the world, a city where the borders blur between politicians and gangsters and between lawful and unlawful, as dangerous new forces of violent extremism are pitted against old networks of power.
