The book takes readers through the rise of the East India Company and it's businesses across various regions like Indonesia, Persia, North America, India, and China. By the 18th century, the company was in shambles as a trading firm, but managed to build an empire in India by slowly increasing its geographical presence in the country. The authors analyze the effect of the East India Company on the current Indian business scenario and India's effect on the trading company, and how it lead to the riches of many back in England.
