SOG BULLETIN: THE 2013 CHARLES H. LEVINE MEMORIAL BOOK PRIZE

Call for nominations: 2013 Levine Book Prize
Governance is now calling for nominations for the 2013 Charles H. Levine Memorial Book Prize. The 2013 Prize Committee comprises Professors Daniel Beland (Chair), Sung Deuk Hahm, and Agnes Batory. The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2013.

Charles H. Levine was an outstanding scholar in the fields of public policy and administration.  He played a major role in the creation and early life of both this journal and its owner, the Structure and Organization of Government Research Committee of the International Political Science Association (SOG).  After his untimely death in 1988, the Editorial Board of Governance and the Executive Committee of SOG established an annual book prize in his memory.

The book selected should meet the following criteria:

  1. It makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration.
  2. It takes an explicitly comparative perspective or produces findings the implications of which are highly significant for comparative research.
  3. It is written in an accessible style and form so that it is of value both to scholars and practitioners.

The Levine Prize will be awarded to the book published in 2012 that best meets these criteria.  Nominations should be made by 30 April 2013 and sent to the committee.  Please send a copy of the book to all three members of the committee.  The winner will be announced in the October 2013 issue of Governance.
