Editorial Reviews

Review


"In this impressive and important study, Jones successfully balances the use of detailed evidence drawn from extensive archival research with attention to broader questions and perspectives. ... This volume will rapidly become required reading for all those interested in the history of international business; but it deserves a wider audience, especially among those dealing with colonialism and economic development."--Enterprise and Society


"This book is a landmark in British business history."--International Journal of Maritime History
