Book Description

16 Sep 2011
Throws light on significant aspects of the Company's history. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MARITIME HISTORY The English East India Company was one of the most powerful commercial companies ever to have existed. It laid the foundations of the British Empire in South Asia and thus lies at the very heart of the interlinked histories of Britain and Asia. This first multi-disciplinary history of the Company to be published commemorates the four-hundredth anniversary of the founding of this unique and extraordinary institution. Historians of art, culture, cartography, empire, politics, the sea, and trade, explore the origins, operation, and influence of the Company as an organisation that remained firmly engaged in maritime commercial activity in many different spheres, even as it acted as a powerful agent of territorial expansion on the Indian subcontinent. H.V. BOWEN is senior lecturer in economic and social history at the University of Leicester; NIGEL RIGBY and MARGARETTE LINCOLN work in the research department of the National Maritime Museum, London.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seen from another angle- an interesting one. 9 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
There are, of course, a goodly number of books about the BEIC, but this is among the best, and almost as good Keays. The approach, though is somewhat novel, and it holds one's interest for page after page. Covers matter not frequently dealt with in detail elsewhere. A good companion to several other histories of the BEIC and highly recommended.
