Karachi

Ordered Disorder and the Struggle for the City

Laurent Gayer

  • Karachi often referred to as "Pakistan in miniature" since it mirrors the larger issues of the nation within its mixed population
  • Argues that within the seemingly chaotic malaise of Karachi's politics, a form of manageable violence exists, on which the functioning of the city is based
  • Karachi is one of the largest and most violent cities in the world
