Abstract

348 Biography 34.2 (Fall 2011) for lack of an audience in antebellum America? A fuller elucidation of the re- actionary intellectual milieu that followed upon the revolutionary era could have helped us fi nd an answer to these questions. Even so, Jack Tar’s Story is an important contribution to the history of storytelling from the bottom up. Glenn allows us to see Jack as an active agent not just when taking on the press gang, but also when forging his own image in the press, whatever the constraints he may have operated under. Her close and systematic analysis of his stories deserves a wide readership in both his- tory and literature departments. The book is handsomely produced, contains footnotes, index, and an ap- pendix listing verifi ed sailor memoirs and autobiographies, but no bibliogra- phy. And like many of Cambridge’s offerings, it is prohibitively expensive for individual readers, and in times of severe budgetary constraints perhaps even for many libraries. That is a pity.
