Book launch: East Indies book talk by Ian Burnet

Sunday 16 February 2014| 2 pm – 4 pm

A fascinating talk about the spice trade and its little known associated collateral. It documents the 200 year struggle between the Portuguese Crown, the Dutch East India Company and the English East India Company for trade supremacy in the Eastern Seas. It documents the rise of the world’s first joint stock and multinational trading companies and their conversion to huge colonial states ruling over millions of people in Indonesia, India and Malaya.
