Reviewed in India on 16 September 2019
Exhaustive and exhausting book. Main stream is detail of EIC's violence on India and of the loot of India. There are many substreams within. Sometimes substream has enough detail (of Nader Shah) sometimes hop skip (impeachment of Harings). The content itself is covered by many books in the past (books like the Honourable Company by John Keay). After I read & closed the book, I felt it added nothing new to what I know already. Overall, it is story of greed and violence of EIC at one place. I also felt that the book ended suddenly without covering much ground on sepoy mutiny,
