For years, the topic of the East India Company has fascinated historians as well as economists, anthropologists, sociologists, and other scholarly types. Some regard the Company as a prime example of an empire draining the resources of underprivileged people and destroying their entire cultures in a heartbeat. Others see it as the earliest corporate business enterprise and a precursor to modern capitalism. But with 258 years of activity, the East India Company can't really be defined in these simple terms. It's all of them yet so much more.
Within this volume, we'd like to introduce the fascinating world of the EIC to you, with all of its bits and bobs and as uncut as possible.

But more importantly, we'll get to see what made the petty English merchants embark upon the journey to the East and what made the Company rise from a trading business to a semi-independent country. And, consequently, what made it fall.
