This book employs a wide range of perspectives to demonstrate how the East India Company facilitated cross-cultural interactions between the English and various groups in South Asia between 1600 to 1857 and how these interactions transformed important features of both British and South Asian history. Rather than viewing the Company as an organization projecting its authority from London to India, the volume shows how the Company’s history and its broader historical significance can best be understood by appreciating the myriad ways in which these interactions shaped the Company’s story and altered the course of history. Bringing together the latest research and several case studies, the work includes examinations of the formulation of economic theory, the development of corporate strategy, the mechanics of state finance, the mapping of maritime jurisdiction, the government and practice of religions, domesticity, travel, diplomacy, state formation, art, gift-giving, incarceration, and rebellion. Together, the essays will advance the understanding of the peculiarly corporate features of cross-cultural engagement during a crucial early phase of globalization. Insightful and lucid, this volume will be useful to scholars and researchers of modern history, South Asian studies, economic history, and political studies.

This book provides a collective view of the five major English chartered trading companies which were active during the period 1688-1763: The East India Company, the Royal African Company, the Hudson's Bay Company, The Levant Company, and the Russia Company. Using both archival and secondary sources, this monograph fills in some of the knowledge gaps concerning the less well-studied companies, and examines the interconnections between international rivalry, the financial operations of the companies, and politics which have not featured prominently in the historiography.

Dieses Buch gibt einen Überblick über die drei zentralen Phasen der Globalisierung in der Moderne: 16. bis 18. Jahrhundert, zweite Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg und zweite Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts bis in die 2010er Jahre. Die internationalen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen werden anhand der Güter-, Arbeits- und Finanzmärkte, der Weltwirtschafts- und Weltwährungsordnungen einschließlich der Handels- und Geldpolitiken sowie der Organisationsformen und Marktstrategien der wirtschaftlichen Akteure, d.h. der Kaufleute, Handelskompanien und internationalen Unternehmen, dargestellt. Das Buch ist chronologisch aufgebaut, wobei die Darstellung der unterschiedlichen Epochen der gleichen Systematik folgt. Damit liegt zum ersten Mal eine Gesamtdarstellung der internationalen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen seit dem 16. Jahrhundert vor, die einen strengen Vergleich zwischen unterschiedlichen Zeitabschnitten ermöglicht und gleichzeitig die übergreifenden Entwicklungslinien beim Handel, bei der Migration und beim Geld- und Kapitalverkehr, bei den politischen Außenwirtschaftsregimen und wirtschaftlichen Unternehmensführungen herausarbeitet.

This study examines the darker side of England's culture of economic improvement between 1640 and 1720. It is often suggested that England in this period grew strikingly confident of its prospect for unlimited growth. Indeed, merchants, inventors, and others promised to achieve immense profit and abundance. Such flowery promises were then, as now, prone to perversion, however. This volume is concerned with the taming of incipient capitalism — how a society in the past responded when promises of wealth creation went badly wrong. It reveals a history of numerous visible hands taming incipient capitalism, a story that Adam Smith and his admirers have long set aside. The notion of 'projecting' played a key role in this process. Thriving theatre, literature, and popular culture in the age of Ben Jonson began elaborating on predominantly negative images of entrepreneurs or 'projectors' as people who pursued Crown's and their own profits at the public's expense. This study examines how the ensuing public distrust came to shape the negotiation in the subsequent decades over the nature of embryonic capitalism. The result is a set of fascinating discoveries. By scrutinising greedy 'projectors', the incipient public sphere helped reorient the practices and priorities of entrepreneurs and statesmen away from the most damaging of rent-seeking behaviours. Far from being a recent response to mainstream capitalism, ideas about socially responsible business have long shaped the pursuit of wealth, power, and profit. Taming Capitalism before its Triumph unravels the rich history of broken promises of public service and ensuing public suspicion — a story that throws fresh light on England's 'transition to capitalism', especially the emergence of consumer society and the financial revolution towards the end of the seventeenth century.
