Abstract

flaws and omissions in the book are tempered by the fact that it seems intended to introduce an idea and encourage more work from others, rather than to stand as an exhaustive study. This reader is still thinking through Smith's ideas and their implications for historical practice in ways that are both troubling and exhilarating, which ultimately is why I believe How Race Is Made merits serious consideration across the discipline. Mi cki M cEl ya is an assistant professor of history at the University of Connecticut and the author of Clinging to Mammy: The Faithful Slave in Twentieth-Century America (Cambridge, MA, 2007). Her current research examines feminism, antiprostitution campaigns, and the history of human trafficking from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. Admiral Lord Howe: A Biography. By David Syrett. (Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2006. Pp. 176. Cloth, $29.95.) Commodore John Rodgers: Paragon of the Early American Navy. By John H. Schroeder. (Gainesville: University Presses of Florida, 2006. Pp. 256. Cloth, $59.95.) Reviewed by William S. Dudley This review compares biographies of two naval officers of different eras, social origins, and navies in variant stages of national and institutional development.
