Foreign Affairs, History and Politics Book Club
For our next book club meeting, we will read the book "Anarchy" by William Dalrymple on the British East India Company. Here is a synopsis:
In August Protected content , the East India Company defeated the young Mughal emperor and forced him to establish a new administration in his richest provinces. Run by English merchants who collected taxes using a a ruthless private army, this new regime saw the East India Company transform itself from an international trading corporation into something much more unusual: an aggressive colonial power in the guise of a multinational business.
In his most ambitious and riveting book to date, William Dalrymple tells the remarkable story of the East India Company as it has never been told before, unfolding a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power.
We are a real book club so reading the book is a must. This book is long so if you can get half way through, please join us for the conversation. I will select the venue getting closer to the date - if there is no Wave 4, then we will try to meet for drinks at a pub. It all depends on how things unfold.
Regardless, please try to read the book. We may also meet online.
