In his most ambitious and riveting book to date, William Dalrymple 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. Three hundred and fifteen years after its founding, with a corporate Mogul now sitting in the White House, the story of the East India Company has never been more current.In his first macro-history, historian William Dalrymple tells the timely and cautionary tale of the rise of the first global private company, and one of the most supreme acts of corporate violence in world history.Tickets for this event are 3 and can be purchased online.
