The trilogy of volumes draws on study of the East India Company's archive and upon the holdings of 24 other repositories. Archives all over Europe and the USA were consulted. The provincial impact of England's largest, most powerful, caring and successful of commercial undertakings is assessed. This second volume recreates and assesses the work and achievements of 12 people who worked for the company in various capacities. Themes examined include what it meant to work for the company, career and social expectations, emoluments, contacts, and consequent social standing. As a result, the fabric of 18th century provincial life is reassessed by demonstrating that company impact extended beyond the appearance and activities of nabobs.
