'A brilliant, important contribution to an understanding of development and poverty' -- Mari Marcel Thekaekara, New Internationalist 'Nick Robins' history of astonishing corporate greed, excess and abuse of power is brilliantly told, and perfectly timed' -- Isabel Hilton, Editor of China Dialogue 'The East India Company might have been relegated to the dustbin of history, but Robins digs it out, looks into the nooks and crannies, and comes up with plenty of insights that today's managers will find rich and rewarding' -- Mick Blowfield, Senior Research Fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Oxford University, co-author of Corporate Responsibility (2011) 'Elegantly written and sharply argued, Nick Robins' gripping account of the rise and fall of the English East India Company brings to life a crucial episode in the history of globalisation' -- Sankar Muthu, Princeton University 'A powerful analysis of the rise and fall of the British East India Company, a private company that conquered a subcontinent and subjugated an entire people' -- Huw Bowen, Professor of Imperial and Maritime History, Swansea University
