Prize Watch: the Donner to Donald Savoie; honours to Craig Heron and Brian Young
Posted by Christopher Moore
What is Government Good At? a public-policy study by the political scientist and pride of Bouctouche, NB.
Savoie's work typically puts an emphasis on empowering civil servants -- to a degree that rather puzzles me, being more of a parliamentary-accountability guy. But he's been a prolific and influential scholar of government -- honour richly deserved.
In other recent prizes, Brian Young was awarded the Canada Prize in the Humanities for Patrician Families and the Making of Quebec: The Taschereaus and McCords Like Savoie's book, that is a McGill-Queen's Press title.
Lunch-Bucket Lives, Remaking the Workers’ City. That is a Between the Lines Press publication.
