Pakistan is at the center stage of global politics today, and the world is keen to know it beyond the typical day-to-day reporting. Moen jo Daro: Metropolis of the Indus Civilization (2600-1900 BCE) brings to the page an engaging narrative of a mysterious, ancient city and its civilization found in present day Pakistan - and one that spread over a vast expanse covering areas in India and Afghanistan. Through text and original pictures specially photographed for this book by Pakistan’s acclaimed photographer Amean J, Moen jo Daro captures in vivid detail the pre-historic heritage of a peaceful Pakistan. Parveen Talpur explores fascinating folklore, ancient legends, and indigenous languages to tell a story encrypted in a script that is yet to be deciphered. Meant for a general readership, as well as scholars and students of history and archaeology, Moen jo Daro is a must read for an international audience that is keen to understand ancient history in the context of modern geo-politics.
