Britain's rise to global dominance from the 16th century onwards owed as much to the vision and creative energies of traders, merchants, industrialists and bankers as it did to wars of conquest fought by empire-building military men. This book tells the story of British business endeavour through the lives of 10 titans of commerce. Beginning with the Tudor merchants who transformed England's economy via trade with the New World, Liam Byrne traces a golden line of British entrepreneurial genius through men such as Thomas Pitt, saviour of the East India Company; financier Nathan Rothschild, creator of the modern bond market; 'ethical capitalist' George Cadbury; and William Lever, brand-builder, philanthropist, and creator of Britain's first great multinational.
