Discontent and its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York and London

by Mohsin Hamid - £16.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2014)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780241146309 | ISBN 10: 0241146305

Discontent and its Civilizations is the essential first collection of non fiction from Mohsin Hamid.
 
Discontent and its Civilizations collects the best of Mohsin Hamid's writing on subjects as diverse and wide-ranging as Pakistan; fatherhood; the death of Osama Bin Laden and the writing of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
 
Unified by the author's humane, clear-headed and witty voice, the book makes a compelling case for recognizing our common humanity while relishing our diversity - both as readers and citizens; for resisting the artificial mono-identities of religion or nationality or race; and for always judging a country or nation by how it treats its minorities, as 'Each individual human being is, after all, a minority of one'.
