In his first book, Steve Inskeep, co-host of NPR’s Morning Edition, explores how rural-to-urban migration has transformed one of the world’s most intriguing places, the booming commercial center of Pakistan.  Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi looks at the perils and possibilities of one of the most rapidly growing metropolises in the world.  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.

Inskeep has traveled across the nation and around the world for Morning Edition and NPR News. From the Persian Gulf to the wreckage of New Orleans, he has interviewed presidents, warlords, authors, and musicians, as well as those who aren’t in the headlines — from a steelworker in Ohio to a woman living in poverty in Tehran.

Inskeep’s first full-time assignment for NPR was the 1996 presidential primary in New Hampshire. He went on to cover the Pentagon, the Senate, and the 2000 presidential campaign of George W. Bush.

After the September 11 attacks, Inskeep covered the war in Afghanistan, the hunt for al-Qaeda suspects in Pakistan, and the war in Iraq. In 2003, he received a National Headliner Award for investigating a military raid that went wrong in Afghanistan.  Here’s more about Steve Inskeep on the NPR website.

Renee Montagne is co-host of NPR’s Morning Edition. She has hosted the newsmagazine since 2004, broadcasting from NPR West in Culver City, California, with co-host Steve Inskeep in NPR’s Washington, D.C. headquarters.

Montagne is a familiar voice on NPR, having reported and hosted since the mid-1980s. She hosted All Things Considered with Robert Siegel for two years in the late 1980s, and previously worked for NPR’s Science, National and Foreign desks.

Since 9-11, Montagne has gone to Afghanistan six times, traveling throughout the country and interviewing farmers and mullahs, women and poll workers, the president and an infamous warlord. She spent a month during the summer of 2009 reporting on the Afghanistan politics and election. She has produced three series: 2002′s “Recreating Afghanistan”; 2004′s “Afghanistan Votes”; and 2006′s “The War: Five Years On.”  To learn more about Renee Montagne,  visit her page at the NPR website.
