Comparative and Historical Sociology Call for Awards Nominations

The section presents the Barrington Moore Award every year to the best book in the area of comparative and historical sociology. Nominated publications should have been published during the two years prior to the year of the award (i.e., for the 2015 award only books published in 2013 or 2014 will be considered). Books may be nominated only once for this prize.  Thus, books nominated last year cannot be considered again for the 2015 award.

Books may be nominated by authors or by other scholars, but not by publishing houses.  Letters of nomination are not required.  To nominate a book, please send an email to each member of the prize committee indicating that you are doing so, and please make arrangements for each member of the committee to receive a copy of the book by the deadline.  Both the book and the email must be received by [deadline] for the book to be considered.  Winners of the award are expected to be members of the comparative historical sociology section at the time the award is presented. Nominations must be received by February 15, 2015 to be considered.
