Comparative and Historical Sociology Call for Awards Nominations


Barrington Moore Book Award

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 2014 award only books published in 2012 or 2013 will be considered). Books may be nominated only once for this prize.  Thus, books nominated last year cannot be considered again for the 2011 award.

Books may be nominated by authors or by other section members. Non-authors may nominate a book by sending a letter or email to the prize committee members. Non-authors should ask authors to arrange to have the book sent to each member of the committee. Authors may nominate their book by sending a letter or email to the prize committee members and making arrangements for each member to receive a copy. Nominations must be received by February 15, 2014 to be considered.
