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 third volume in the trilogy examines the impact of the company shipwrecks. Questions posed include: what did it mean to be shipwrecked?; what was the social and economic impact?; and how did the company and the individuals involved cope? As with the first two volumes, this dramatic dimension of company development is assessed from various perspectives.
