The Piracies of John Fowke (Audio Version)

Merchant adventure on the high seas of London finance

Upgrade to listen
Everything I produce related to London merchant adventurer and military entrepreneur John Fowke. My scholarship has centered on his role in the outbreak of the English Civil War, the parliamentary victory, and the birth of mass politics. Fowke and his Puritan partners shaped the nascent British gunpowder empire from the 1627 through the Restoration. No standalone volume about John Fowke exists. In fact, as far as I can tell I am the first person to ever write an essay focused on his career.
