Margot Canaday and Anthony S. Chen both win APSA’s Gladys M. Kammerer Award

It looks like Christopher S. Parker won’t be the only PUP author honored at the 2010 American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Meeting this year; Margot Canaday and Anthony S. Chen will be joining him!

Margot and Anthony are the 2010 joint recipients of APSA’s 2010 Gladys M. Kammerer Award for The Straight State: Sexuality and Citizenship in Twentieth-Century America and The Fifth Freedom: Jobs, Politics, and Civil Rights in the United States, 1941-1972, respectively.  The two books are considered this year’s best political science publications in the field of U.S. national policy.

The Straight State has also earned Margot the 2010 Ellis W. Hawley prize, awarded by the Organization of American Historians, and the 2010 Lambda Literary Award for LGBT Studies by the Lambda Literary Foundation.

For The Fifth Freedom, Anthony has received two additional APSA prizes: he has co-won the 2010 J. David Greenstone Award in the Politics and History Section and won the 2010 Best Book Award in the Race, Ethnicity, and Politics Section.  Anthony has also won the Social Science History Association’s 2008 President’s Book Award.

Great work, Margot and Anthony, and many wishes for continued success!
