Eight leading business historians examine the role of British business in Iran, India, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Russian Asia, and Japan. The primary focus is on the impact of British commerce in the region, and the essays, based on research in British business archives and government papers, discuss the activities and performance of British companies.
