Albert J. Beveridge Award Recipients
The Albert J. Beveridge Award is given annually for the best 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 a significant reinterpretation of an important historical problem are given preference in the awarding of this prize. The award was established on a biennial basis in 1939 and has been awarded annually since 1945.
