Known as the 'kingmaker', Laurence Sulivan (1713-1786) was a director of the East India Company and its guiding spirit, controlling a vast commercial and political empire from its headquarters in the City of London during Britain's 18th century financial revolution and rise to supremacy in India and Southeast Asia. In this scholarly biography McGilvary paints a vivid picture of a supremely influential and colourful business figure as he watched over the most powerful company of his day.
