The nineteenth century was transformed by two revolutions : the growing industrial technology of the West and Europe's domination of Africa and Asia. This unique study - based on archival research and recent scholarship - traces the connection between the two, not just through the classic economic search for raw materials and new markets but through the innovative entrepreneurial spirit of the age.
