Best Book Award
The REP Section's annual book awards recognize the very best research exploring the multiple junctures between politics and issues of race, ethnicity, immigration, and indigeneity, as well as their intersections with other axes of identity and marginalization. We seek nominations for books that broadly focus on racial and ethnic politics, from scholars across all sub-fields of political science and allied disciplines. Singly- and multiply-authored books, monographs as well as textbooks, will be considered. Books published/copyrighted in calendar year 2019 are eligible for the prize. Books that were nominated in previous years are not eligible and should not be renominated.
Instructions: Please send one copy of each nominated book directly to each of the committee members at the addresses listed below. Deadline for nominations: April 1, 2021
