Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Robb's portrayal of Calcutta around 1800, the last of three studies based on the huge diary of Richard Blechynden, architect and surveyor, focuses on meddling Europeans and the workings of friendship. It shows friendly norms and networks underwriting credit, securing jobs, shaping work-practices, facilitating town-development and mediating for law and administration, while mostly excluding Indian employers, partners, agents and employees.
