The Anarchy: A New Book by William Dalrymple

NEW YORK, September 18, 2019 — In The Anarchy: The Relentless Rise of the East India Company, historian William Dalrymple tells a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power. From the defeat and capture of the Mughal emperor to the fall of Delhi, The Anarchy details how an entire subcontinent fell under the jurisdiction of a private enterprise, answerable only to its shareholders and administered from a boardroom thousands of miles away.
