The British East India Company like its counterparts in Canada, Australia and other colonies, acting under Royal Charter, acquired wide powers of government, monopolized trade with England and was the vanguard of British imperial expansion in the east ... with detailed information on all aspects of the company’s internal internal and external affairs: organization, administrative and trading practices; the coordination of commercial and governmental responsibilities; the company’s attitudes to and relationships with the Indian states and the English Government; and the effects of reforms instituted by the legislation of 1813 and 1833. Local government, revenue and finance, law and legal adminstration, military affairs, diplomatic relations are some of the specific topics covered ... a valuable documentary on oriental life as well as on Indian politics.’
