On Monday, The Hill Times published its annual list of “Best 100 Books” from the past year. As usual, books funded by the Federation’s Awards to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP) were well represented. In fact, 23 of the 100 books – almost a quarter of the list! – were supported by the ASPP.

As you might imagine, we’re absolutely chuffed that so many of the political science books we’ve supported have been recognized by The Hill Times in this way. The Federation sends a hearty “congratulations” to all the authors and publishers of these great books! Here is the list of the ASPP books that made the cut:
