history from below in Pakistan: Mubarak Ali


If anyone can claim the title of “the people’s historian” in Pakistan, it is Mubarak Ali. Some years ago, he put up all his books – Urdu and English – on his website in PDF format. He has been a prolific writer, and although his work in Urdu far outweighs that in English, I thought it would be a good idea to make his English work more accessible. And so I did the following visualization to browse his books, broken down and categorized by chapter and some useful tags.

I came across my visualization again today and wondered why I hadn’t put it up on this blog all these years, and so I did.
