Elise M. Boulding Prize in Peace History

PHS has decided to create a new book prize, which will be awarded to an outstanding book in peace history with the qualification that first books and dissertations are not eligible. The idea behind this prize is to recognize the excellence of established scholars who have already published a book and thus whose work is not eligible for the Bills Memorial Prize (for first book or dissertation). This prize, awarded biennially, carries a cash award of $500.

The PHS invites nominations (including self-nominations) for an outstanding English-language nonfiction book by a single author in the field of peace history published in 2015 or 2016. First books and dissertations are not eligible. By June 1, 2017, please submit a letter of nomination, including publication information of previous book(s) and one copy of the book directly to each member of the Boulding Prize Committee:
