Morris D. Forkosch Prize

The Journal of the History of Ideas will award the Morris D. Forkosch Prize ($2000) for the best book in intellectual history published in 2007.

The awards committee favors books which are published in English and which display some interdisciplinary range, demonstrate sound scholarship, and make an original contribution to the history of thought and culture.
