About this Item: Oxford University Press, Pakistan, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. This volume combines two books; Karachi 1839-1947: A Short History of the Foundation and Growth of Karachi by Behram Sohrab H. J. Rustomji, and Karachi: That Was the Capital of Sindh by Sohrab K. H. Katrak, that provide an interesting and informative picture of Karachi as it once was. Both the authors wrote their respective histories of the city in the early years of Independence. Both authors trace the story of this fishing village-cum-trading post from the time of its occupation by the British, with a population of a few tens of thousands, up to the year of the emergence of Pakistan, with the city of 400,000 as its capital. Aside from nostalgia, this book provides an insight into the 'love for Karachi' that motivated many of its early residents to contribute selflessly to its growth and development. This account will be of great interest to residents, administrators and planners of today's population of over 15 million who live together in a ‘melting pot’ that contains virtually 10 per cent of the population of Pakistan.
