Cundill Prize, official website.

Awarded by the Peter Cundill Foundation & McGill University

The Cundill History Prize recognizes and rewards the best history writing in mostrar mais English. The award is the largest non-fiction historical literature prize in the world given to an author whose work has had a profound literary, social and academic impact on the field.

A prize of US$75,000 is awarded annually to the book that embodies historical scholarship, originality, literary quality and broad appeal. The two runners-up each receive US$10,000.

Administered by McGill University in Montreal and awarded by a distinguished jury, the Cundill History Prize honours the abiding passion for history of its founder, F. Peter Cundill, by encouraging informed public debate through the wider dissemination of history writing to new audiences around the world.

Any historical period or subject is eligible, and translations into English are warmly welcomed. Books are accepted regardless of the nationality or place of residence of their authors.
