Starting life as a trader in Asian spices, the Company ended its days running Britain's Indian empire. In the process, it shocked its contemporaries with the scale of its violence, corruption and speculation." "This is the first-ever book to expose the truth about the Company's social record. Robins reveals a hidden story of tragedy and intrigue. War, famine, stockmarket bubbles and even duels between rival executives are all to be found in this new account. For Robins, the Company's legacy provides compelling lessons on how to ensure the accountability of today's global business. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET." ;
