Description

The Company Quartet | The Anarchy, White Mughals, Return of a King, and The Last Mughal

From multi-award-winning and bestselling historian William Dalrymple, a four-book collection chronicling the extraordinary story of the rise and fall of the East India Company.

Even though we still talk about the British conquering India, the word hides a far more deadly reality. Because it was a potentially uncontrolled private enterprise housed in one little office, five windows wide, in the city of London that began taking portions of India in the mid-eighteenth century, not the British government.

‘The Company Quartet’ explores the astonishing narrative of how the Mughal empire, which generated just under half of the world’s wealth at the time, crumbled and was replaced by the first global corporate power: the East India Company, using two decades of rigorous research and skillful narrative.

William Dalrymple’s epic, bestselling and multi-award-winning histories are now available in this magnificent paperback box set, presented in a stylish slipcase. Comprised of four individual books – The AnarchyWhite MughalsReturn of a King, and The Last Mughal – this essential collection spans over two hundred years of tumultuous colonial history, covert political machinations, and bloody resistance.

BY William Dalrymple
