The John L. Nau III Center for Civil War History at the University of Virginia invites nominations for the 2021 John Nau Book Prize in American Civil War Era History. Titles published in 2020 will be eligible. The $25,000 prize focuses primarily on scholarship devoted to the war itself but is also open to works on the background and consequences of the conflict. Collections of essays or primary documents, works of fiction, and poetry should not be submitted.
Publishers should submit copies of nominated books directly to members of the judging committee by January 30, 2021. The winner will be announced by July 1, 2021, and the award presented at an event sponsored by the Center.
