Description: The British Empire is one of the most controversial of history topics in the current curriculum. How different were the British imperialist projects from the expansion associated with twenty-first-century global capitalism? The business of empire reached a climax with the East India Company and its role in Britain’s global history from 1600 to 1860, involving political intrigue and military conquest alongside building trade and personal wealth. The impact of the company on Britain and India is explored in this enquiry.
