Summary The English East India Company was the mother of the modern multinational. Established in 1600, its trading empire encircled the globe, creating a lifestyle revolution. The Company's practices shocked its contemporaries and still reverberate today. This book explores the Company's enduring global legacy. It investigates how the Company's spectacular rise and fall were driven by the four forces of finance, technology, monopoly and regulation
