- The Relentless Rise of the East India Company
- Written by: William Dalrymple
- Narrated by: Sid Sagar
- Length: 15 hrs and 43 mins
The Anarchy tells the remarkable story of how one of the world’s most magnificent empires disintegrated and came to be replaced by a dangerously unregulated private company, based thousands of miles overseas in one small office, five windows wide, and answerable only to its distant shareholders. In his most ambitious and riveting audiobook to date, William Dalrymple tells the story of the East India Company as it has never been told before, unfolding a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power.

the mispronounced indian words were off-putting.
this is my first Dalrymple, it's a magnificent book which opens your eyes to the attrocitues committed by the EIC. The narration is quite bad, many indian words are mispronounced and that's honestly off putting.
