The Luciano Tomassini Latin American International Relations Book Award is presented at each LASA International Congress to the author(s) of an outstanding book on Latin American foreign policies and international relations published in English, Spanish or Portuguese in any country. Books eligible for the 2018 award must have been published between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. Anthologies of selections by several authors are not eligible. Books will be judged on the originality of the research, the quality of the analysis and writing and the significance of their contribution to the study of Latin America and the Caribbean. Books may be nominated by authors, LASA members, or publishers.
Persons who nominate books are responsible for confirming the publication date and for forwarding one copy directly to each member of the Award Committee, at the expense of the authors or publishers. A nomination packet should include a statement justifying the nomination; a copy of the nominated book; and the complete mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address of the nominee. Packets should be sent directly to individual award committee members and to the LASA Secretariat by September 21, 2017. Applications for the Luciano Tomassini Latin American International Relations Book Award can be submitted electronically. Please fill out the Award Submission Form and send it back to the LASA’s Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org by September 21, 2017. For international shipping, please label all books as gifts and not as samples.
All books nominated must reach each member of the Award Committee and the LASA Secretariat by September 21, 2017. By January 20, 2018, the committee will select a winning book. It may also name an honorable mention. The award will be announced at the LASA2018 Awards Ceremony, and the awardee will be publicly honored.
