The history of the East India Company is extraordinarily long and complex, covering two continents and spanning two and a half centuries. It is the story of a multi-stranded trade, intimately connected to political developments in up to eight major countries besides India, whilst within India it is tied to a multiplicity of regional dynasties and kingdoms. The Company’s dealings span the reigns of fourteen monarchs in Britain and fifteen Emperors in India, which is a great deal of politics for the Directors to have navigated and a huge pool of names and faces for any historian to narrate. The enormous Company archive probably contains a significant proportion of all the ascertainable facts on earth.

This eBook is a great guide to an organisation that has no parallel in history.
