Karachi Before The British Conquest Book By Arif Hasan

Karachi Before The British Conquest Book By Arif Hasan

The outline for this book was prepared by me in 1983 and between 1983 and 1987, I collected a large volume of material on the city and in the process, interviewed its older citizens; representatives of community, trade, and religious organizations: and identified and mapped its old bars, nightclubs, billiard rooms, cinemas, eating places, schools, bookshops, markets, and community buildings. Much of this material has been published in my media writings on Karachi, some in my book “Understanding Karachi” published in 2010 by City Press, and in my seminar papers.
