The Anarchy is a popular history book on the East Indian Company EIC in 18th Century India Dalrymple regale us the rise of the EIC from a Tudor privateering operation full of ex Caribbean privates to an imperial power Considering that the British were pretty late to the spice trade in India compared to the Portuguese Dutch and the French their raise as an imperial power is extraordinaryRise of of the first Multinational Corporation East Indian Company EIC basically invented corporate lobbying insider training and first corporate bail out and all the other things we loathe about modern corporation EIC developed a symbiotic relationship with the British Parliamentarians Company men like Clive used the looted money from India to buy both MPs and parliamentary seats The Parliament backed the Company with state power because many MPs were shareholders of EIC and any action against the company will affect their personal wealthSilk Spices and Sepoy Thanks to the dwindling military and financial power of the Mughals a huge military labor market sprang up all across India Dalrymple describes this as one of the most thriving free markets of fighting men anywhere in the world all up for sale to the highest bidder Warfare become a business enterprise and substantial section of peasants spent part of their time year as mercenaries EIC were better off financially and were able to pay the sepoys the promised wage on time than many local rulers EIC were using as much as 80% Indian sepoyts in many of their battlesThe British very really lucky Although popular theories propose that the success of the EIC can be attributed to the fragmenting to Mughal India into tiny competing states the military tech of the Europeans and innovation of banking taxing and administration of the Anglo saxons one of the recurring themes that I found is how lucky in the may of the battles Yes the above theories are probably true and East India Company troop were disciplined than their Indian rivals but its incredible how consistently lucky the British wereBreak the Rules Warfare in India were actually done in gentlemanly manner The Mughals Marathas and other local rulers pursued negotiation bribery and paying tribute In case of actual conuest there are rules by which they abide by The Company men especially Robert Clive who committed suicide at the age of 49 Hope someone soon writes a biography on this truly appalling character constantly breaking the rules like attacking at night and attacking at thunderstorm etcWhy we need to learn to negotiate Mughals were completely clueless about who corporation functions or how unsavory Clive operates as an Profiteer Ghulam Hussain Khan says a sale of jackass would have taken up time than the time taken for the Treaty of Allahbad Post Treaty of Allahabad EIC used Indian tax revenue to purchase textiles and spies Even at the time of famines EIC enforces tax collection to maintain their revenue and growing military expenditure At the height of the famine English merchants engaged in grain hoarding profiteering and speculationNorth vs South India Even after Battle of Plassey Cavalry was the dominant form of warfare in northern India and continued to fight each other despite the growing domination of the British However the south was every uick to copy and learn the military innovations of the Europeans Haider Ali had a modern infantry and his troops were innovative and tactically ahead of EIC They mastered the art of firing rockets long before the English Nana Phadnavus the Maratha Machiavelli after the Treaty of Wadgaon proposed a Triple Alliance between the Marathas Haider and the Nizam of HyderabadIndian Bankers love the Company The rise of EIC as an imperial power would not be possible with out the Indian bankers The Indian financiers saw greater advantage in keeping the Company in power than they did supporting their own By 1803 Indian bankers were competing with one another to back the company s armyIn the end its the Company s ability to mobilize money have them the edge over the Marathas and Tipu Sultan It was no longer the superior European military technology Bengal alone was annually yeilding a steady revenue surplus of Rs 25 million at the time when Scindia struggled to net Rs 2 million The biggest firm of the period the houses of Lala Kashmiri Mal Ramchand Gopalchand Shahu and Gopaldas Manohardas helped the military finance of the British The Company duly rewarded the invaluable services in 1782 by making the house of Gopaldas the government s banker Richard Wellesley managed raise Rs 10 million with the support of Marwari bankers of Bengal to fight the Fourth Anglo Mysore warFinal nail in the coffin Following the victory of the Battle of Delhi EIC defeated the last indigenous power Now linked Bengal Madras and Bombay while imposing itself as Regent under the MughalsMy only complaints is that the book doesn t drive into the financial details of

The praise showered by Salman Rushdie That rarity a scholar of history who can really write seems well placed going by the simple and lucidly attractive style of writing The introduction sets the pace when it is told that the Company though thought mostly as a Mission Civilisartice a benign national transfer of knowledge railways and arts of civilisation from West to East was actually authorised by its founding charter to wage war It indeed captured a Portuguese vessel on its maiden voyage in 1602 Pg xxiv It goes on to narrate the story of one of the wealthiest polities of the world looted by a company It is the story of a mighty Mughal empire being replaced by a company

The book opens with a list of characters beginning with Lord Robert Clive whom Mr Dalrymple hates It s followed by Warren Hastings whom he loves Clive he describes as a genuinelya ruthless unprincipled plunderer p 311 and yet on p 312 we read of Hasting s excesses which appear to have included judicial murder and yet still he loves him He ll forgive him anything and is very happy to remind us that upon impeachment Warren Hastings was cleared of all charges but is pretty uiet about Clive who was cleared of all charges that had been levelled against him long before The book is a chronology of the Mughals and the how the British gained India the heavy handed brutal antics of the East India Company and its British officers He singles out Lord Robert Clive He attacks him in a personal vindictive way which not only smacks of amateurism but reads as though he s trying to appease a little gang somewhere It made me focus on it He makes him the villain of the piece Yet from Clive s correspondence not uoted in this book we read that this same man upon purchasing of land in Wales and on the Welsh borders pored over the maps to ask which tenant farmed what type of land and where they were farming marginal hill land reduced their rent to a homage rent peppercorn which is not consistent with the bigoted picture Mr Dalrymple paints He s eually rude about the Powis family but I notice but didn t have the grace to visit any of them during his research as Bence Jones had in his book Clive of India who went to see the Earl of Plymouth and gathered a lot of personal information thereby Obviously Mr Dalrymple considers himself above common courtesyLater in the book he accuses Henrietta Clive who went to India to join her husband Edward Governor of Madras of carrying off jewels looted from Tipu Sultan s palace after his defeat by Richard Wellesley in 1799 p 353 She paid for them Had she not bought them where would they be now Not in an Indian museum for certain They d have been lost Today they form part of a collection of the National Trust in Powys Castle It s reminiscent of the Elgin Marbles had Elgin not recovered these where would they have been now In Greek hands Or likely become target practice smashed up and turned into foundation rubble for a block of flats Had Robert Clive Lord Robert Clive s great grandson not gone as watercolour artist to record the excavations at of the Assyrian reliefs in Nimroud and imported to England The Assyrian King Tukul apil esharra III Tiglath pileser III bas relief which now hangs in the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum where would that be now Robert Clive painted the lamassu the monolithic stone sculptures of human headed winged bulls which Layard shipped to England which were exhibited in a the British Museum this year The ones that remained ISIS blew up and defaced whose shattered remains vividly demonstrate Perhaps it might have been a little less spiteful to thank Henrietta Clive for saving these treasures And Lady Clive Lord Robert Clive s wife Margaret Maskelyne whose character he attempts to assassinate by first of all attempting to demonise her brother Dr Nevil Maskelyne Astronomer Royal whom Dava Sobel turned into the blockhead of her book Longitude then secondly by telling us of a report from The Salisbury Journal that her pet ferret had a diamond necklace 2500 p 140 It was a joke Mr Dalrymple a satirical joke She didn t really have a pet ferret with a diamond necklace you see To try to pass that one off as fact is a bit cheap And another if a beggar asked charity of Clive he reputedly responded Friend I have no small brilliants about me is another joke Mr Dalrymple a skit It s depressing to encounter an historian so unfamiliar with 18th Century satire and humour as to miss it again and again It might explain why his own book is so shorn of it Usually I look forward to my bed time read but not this one I slogged on to encounter yet dubiously executed insults of Clive We are told that after Plassey Clive wore six or seven bracelets every one of a different species of gem and he also had hanging from his neck over his breast three or four chaplets of pearls every one of inestimable valueHe at the same time amused himself with listening to the songs and looking at the dances of a number of singers who he carried around with him wherever he went on elephants Pull the other one it s way out of character Moreover given that Mr Dalrymple assures us how much Clive hated India and the Indians it seems pretty unlikely that he would go around dressed or behaving like one As a source he uotes Ghulam Hussan Khan whoever he is it reads to me that Ghulam Hussan Khan cracked another satirical joke another Mr Dalrymple missed On page 263 he delivers another twist of spite where Shah Alam writes a letter to his fellow monarch George III in England sending along a nazr ceremonial gift of rare jewels worth Rs100000 1M today we are advised Neither letters nor gift reached their destination The inference being Clive stole them Ships sunk Mr Dalrymple Cargoes never reached England Many fortunes were lost at sea Including gifts from potentates one to another Check your shipping and you ll find outThis book is a slog There are no insightful little cameos of what it must have been like to have been a sepoy or gunner or mahoot in the Indian army or in the EIC army for that matter no insight into the daily fare For me Dalrymple falls into the category of the dusty academic who manages to cram in every historical detail while missing the human story It makes for heavy going the book is thick it s hard to hold in bed at night the only place to read it is on a desk or table I d advise anyone thinking of buying it to get the Kindle version at you ll be spared the struggleThe best line in the book comes right at the end when Shah Alam dies which tells us that he was the last of the Timurid line beginning with the lame and ending with the blind but even they re not his words They come from a uote by William Fraser Ochterlony s deputy p 387 Shah Alam had awarded the Diwani with Clive and his end was as a chessboard king with a pension paid by the EIC under the protection of Richard Wellesley who conuered of India than Napoleon did of Europe become power mad and turned into a something of a despot himself before being recalled to England for his excesses His brother Arthur later the Duke of Wellington returned from India a very wealthy man as well Do we hear any criticism of these How they came by their loot The East India Company was a rotten business and as he fairly states an example of irresponsible corporate greed at its very worst but then so had been the South Sea Company which very nearly brought down the entire British economy in the 1720s Commerce it would appear does not learnAll told I found the book turgid and prejudiced I ll certainly not pick it up again nor recommend it
