Donner Prize and Pulitzer Prize

The Donner Prize for books on Canadian public policy is uncompromising. Every year you've never heard of most of the nominees. And that's a good thing. This year's shortlisted titles, recently announced, are mostly books that have not been hugely noticed, but they look serious and worthwhile. Not much history this year. Three of the four are from west coast writers and publishers.

Meanwhile, at the Pulitzer Prizes in the United States, the History, Biography, and General Non-Fiction winners are all histories.
