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:
- It makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration.
- It takes an explicitly comparative perspective or produces findings the implications of which are highly significant for comparative research.
- 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 2014 that best meets these criteria. Nominations should be made by 31 March 2015 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 2015 issue of Governance.
