We are pleased to invite nominations for this year's W.J.M. Mackenzie Book Prize.

Now entering its 36th year, the prestigious PSA's Mackenzie Prize is awarded annually to the best book published in political science. We are now accepting nominations for books published in the 2021 calendar year.

Last year’s winning books were Brexitland (Cambridge University Press) by Maria Sobolewska & Robert Ford and Feminist Democratic Representation (Oxford University Press) by Karen Celis & Sarah Childs.

Nominations may be received from publishers, PSA Specialist Groups, heads of department and by self-nomination (with the support of three additional PSA members).

Nominations should be submitted digitally in the first instance using the nomination form (below) accompanied by a one-page supporting statement. Applicants will be required to submit four hard copies of the nominated publication before their nomination is accepted.

Supporting Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in our discipline is a key strategic priority for the PSA. Therefore, we would particularly welcome nominations from women, and from black and minority ethnic authors.

The winner will be announced during the PSA’s next international conference 3 – 5 April 2023 (in partnership with the University of Liverpool).

Please also ensure you have familiarised yourself with the rules for submission.
