The Albert J. Beveridge Award
To promote and honor outstanding historical writing, the American Historical Association offers each year the Albert J. Beveridge Award in American History. The award is given for a distinguished book in English on the history of the United States, Latin America, or Canada, from 1492 to the present. Books that employ new methodological or conceptual tools or that constitute significant reexaminations of important interpretive problems will be given preference. Literary merit is also an important criterion. General rules for submission are:
1. Biographies, monographs, and works of synthesis and interpretation are eligible; translations, anthologies, and collections of documents are not.
2. Only books bearing an imprint of 2013 are eligible for the 2014 prize.
3. In addition to sending a copy of each prize entry to members of the selection committee, please complete the Data Collection Form at the link below. One form must be completed for each entry. Fields marked with a blue star are required.
4. Entries in the competition—limited to five titles from any one publisher—must be submitted by sending a copy to EACH member of the committee. Entries must be postmarked by or on MAY 15, 2014, to be considered for the 2014 competition.
Contact information for judges and a submission data collection form
