'Morning Edition's' Steve Inskeep On Karachi

10/27/2011 at 9:00 a.m.

Steve Inskeep, co–host of "Morning Edition," joins us. The city Karachi, a former port town that has grown to more than 13 million residents, is the focus of his new book, "Instant City." Inskeep uses the bombing of a Shia religious procession in 2009 to look at the big issues shaping the city, from real estate development to political revenge and religion. In America, we often perceive Karachi as a dangerous and violent place. Today, we'll get a more comprehensive picture. We'll also get a look behind the scenes of how "Morning Edition" is put together every day.
