“The Fifth Freedom” is an APSA favorite

Another PUP author who we must congratulate Anthony S. Chen.  He has been recognized by the American Political Science Association for his book The Fifth Freedom: Jobs, Politics, and Civil Rights in the United States, 1941-1972, which recently won the Race, Ethnicity, and Politics section’s 2010 Best Book Award.

The Fifth Freedom not only met but surpassed the highest standards for the award: “In addition to demonstrated superiority in scholarship on the studying of race, ethnicity, and politics, the nominated work should focus substantially or entirely on developments in the U.S. context.”

Great work, Anthony!

The Fifth Freedom is also the winner of the 2009 President’s Book Award of the Social Science History Association.
