Since World War II, cities around the world have been steadily expanding. But Pakistan's port city of Karachi has exploded -- now nearly 30 times its former size. In his new book "Instant City," NPR's Morning Edition co-host Steve Inskeep explores life in Karachi as its citizens struggle and improvise to keep pace with the rapid development. Inskeep joins host Dave Iverson in the studio.
