OAH - Frederick Jackson Turner Award
Organization: Organization of American Historians
This award is offered for an author's first book on some significant phase of American history and also to the press that submits and publishes it. The rules and terms of the competition are as follows: the work must be the first book-length study of history published by the author; if the author has a Ph.D., he/she must have received it no earlier than seven years prior to submission of the manuscript for publication; the work must be published in the calendar year before the award is given; the work must deal with some significant phase of American history. Each entry must be published during the previous calendar year. If a book carries a copyright date that is different from the publication date, but the actual publication date falls during the correct time frame making it eligible, please include a letter of explanation.
