Steve Inskeep is the host of NPR's "Morning Edition" and has written a book, "Instant City: Life And Death In Karachi." It's a deeply reported portrait of Karachi, Pakistan; a city that illuminates the perils and possibilities of rapidly growing metropolises all around the world. In "Instant City," Inskeep investigates the 2009 bombing of a Shia religious procession that killed dozens of people and led to further acts of terrorism, including widespread arson at a popular market. 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.
