The historian and the author, William Dalrymple will be in Kochi for the launch of his latest book The Anarchy: The East India Company, Corporate Violence, and the Pillage of an Empire. The event will happen at St.Theresas College on October 22, 2019, at 5:30 pm.
Tracing the empire within an empire, Dalrymple narrates the story of East India Company that colonized India before the British Empire ruled the country. Rich in anecdotes, the dimension that the author brings in to this prequel to his earlier book The Last Mughal: The End of A Dynasty, is an unbiased outlook of how the least professional East India Company changed over the years and the face of the most powerful empire.
The event which is open to all will also feature a discussion and book signing by the author.
