This annotated bibliography uses books, pamphlets, and maps to trace the activity of the East India Company in the century-plus following the India Act of 1784. Through these publications, we see the sometimes fraught relations among the Company’s board, its directors, and Parliament, and we observe the gradual decline of its business as it loses its trading monopoly and took on an increasingly heavy administrative burden in India. Arranged chronologically, the bibliography itself is complemented by introductory explanations of the historical context relevant to an understanding of each year, as well as appendices covering the corruption trial of East India Company executive and Governor General of Bengal Warren Hastings.
 

Philip J. Stern, Duke University | H-Net
“This book is a real accomplishment, representing original, painstaking, and enterprising work in an increasingly crowded field of company studies, which will certainly be of great use and interest not only to historians of British India but also to historians of early modern Britain, print culture, political economy, and many more besides. I certainly know it will be one East India Company book sure to be perched conspicuously within reach on my shelf for years to come.”
