How England Colonized India by Hayden J. Bellenoit

How England Colonized India

by Hayden J. Bellenoit


Title Details

This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called A History of British India taught by Professor Hayden J. Bellenoit, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to Wondrium.

Within three generations the British East India Company would supplant the reigning Mughal dynastic empire to become the masters of the Indian subcontinent. In this free lecture provided by The Great Courses, Professor Hayden J. Bellenoit explains some of the factors that brought about such a remarkable shift in India, starting in the 1700s until the rise of Mahatma Gandhi. Professor Bellenoit skillfully lays out three main points that led to British dominance, including decentralization of the empireā€™s power base, the strong worldwide demand for Indian goods, and the willingness of prominent banking families to play ball; all of which set the stage for one of the most ruthless examples of colonialism that the world has ever seen.
