Bloomsbury Architecture Library offers the landmark 21st edition of Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, fully rewritten with updates from over 100 experts, and an expanding range of eBooks, covering architecture, architectural history, theory, design, urbanism, landscape, and interiors.
From 16th century origins as a trading venture to the East Indies, through to its rise as the world’s most powerful company and de facto ruler of India, to its demise amid allegations of greed and corruption – the East India Company was an extraordinary force in global history.
Three modules available.
From the Company’s charter in 1600 to Indian independence in 1947, East India Company tells the story of trade with the East; politics; and the rise and fall of the British Empire. It records the challenges of a globalising world and sheds light on many contrasting narratives – from records of powerful political figures, through to the lives of native populations and the individual traders who lived and worked at the edge of Empire.
The wonderfully rich and diverse South Asian manuscript collections of the National Library of Scotland are extremely varied, ranging from the papers of key East India Company representatives and colonial officials to records of daily life in Agra, Bombay, Lahore, and Madras.
This collection weaves the story of India and Empire through the writings of Governor-Generals, Commander-in-Chiefs, Indian Princes, soldiers, traders, missionaries, explorers, historians and authors of literary works, indigo farmers and tea and coffee planters.
Especially strong for the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, this collection will be of particular interest to historians studying: British Indian Empire; government, administration and politics, the relationship between Britain and the British Indian Empire, the role of the Scots in India, the Indian Uprising and trade and agriculture.
