The 2014 Gelber Prize Shortlist Reveals Year's Best Foreign Affairs Books Worldwide

 
[10-February-2014]
 

TORONTO AND WASHINGTON, February 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Patricia Rubin, President of the Lionel Gelber Prize Board and niece of Lionel Gelber, today announced the five books shortlisted for the 2014 Lionel Gelber Prize:

"Four of the five books on the Lionel Gelber Prize shortlist reveal telling aspects of American governance in pressing circumstances. We see how personalities in the White House play over-sized roles in the conduct of foreign policy, at times to tragic effect. In the fifth book, we see how inexorably the central dilemmas of Europe arrive on American shores without pity for American desires. There is an epic quality to this coincidence of subjects that can be read as one," said Jury Chair William Thorsell

The winner of the 2014 prize will be announced on March 31 and will speak at a free public event at the Munk School of Global Affairs on Thursday, April 24, 2014.

About the Jury: Jury Chair William Thorsell (Canada), was joined by Jurors Timothy Garton Ash (Oxford, England), Daniel W. Drezner (Massachusetts, USA), Chrystia Freeland (Toronto, Canada), and Matias Spektor (Brazil).
