Prize Watch: GGs and the Cundill

The Governor General's Literary Award winners for 2017 are announced.  Congratulations to all the winners, but since historians are thin on the ground (to say the least), I'll just link you to for the deets.

If it's historians and history books you seek, the three finalists for the Cundill Prize in History were announced some days ago. Winners November 16.
  • The House of Dead: Siberian exile under the Tsars by Daniel Beer,
  • Vietnam: A New History by Christopher Goscha,
  • The Great Leveler: Violence and the History of Inequality from the Stone Age to the Twenty-First Century by Walter Scheidel
