William Dalrymple presents sections of his book about the remarkable story of how one of the world’s most magnificent empires disintegrated and came to be replaced by a dangerously unregulated private company, based thousands of miles overseas in one small office, five windows wide, and answerable only to its distant shareholders. It tells the story of the East India Company as it has never been told before, unfolding a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power.

A straight talk by William Dalrymple.
