Laurence Sulivan embodied the East India Company. He lived at the Company's heart in the city of London in India House, and controlled a vast commercial and political empire during Britain's "Commercial Revolution" and rise to superpower status and supremacy in India and South and Southeast Asia. He was "king-maker," politician, manipulator and negotiator, deeply involved in British and Indian affairs, friend and confident of Chatham, Clive, Burke and Pitt the Younger and--very importantly--protector of Warren Hastings. McGilvary paints a vivid and convincing picture of an influential and colorful business figure as he controlled the most powerful private company of his day.
