The Corporation That Changed the World


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 through importing Asian luxuries such as spices, textiles and teas. But the Company's practices shocked its contemporaries and still reverberate today.

Now in an expanded second edition, 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. In the process Robins charts an extraordinary story of international exchange, stock market bubbles, boardroom battles, social protest and, ultimately, rebellion.
