Imagining New Orleans

The American Political Science Association has cancelled its annual meeting, which was to have been held in New Orleans. The tornado won. I was never planning to go; too many obligations here. But I was looking forward to imagining myself at the awards dinner, glass of wine in hand.

My book, The Canadian Founding, John Locke and Parliament (2007) won the Seymour Martin Lipset Award for best book in political science. I am a co-recipient, sharing the prize with Stephen Clarkson (University of Toronto) for his Does North America Exist? Governing the Continent After NAFTA and 9/11 (2008).

I’ll have the glass of wine anyway.

    I was very pleased to hear about your book winning the APSA award. It’s the best of the books you’ve authored over the years and deserves wider recognition. Hopefully, more people will read it now! Congrats again.

    Warmest congratulations! This is a most prestigious award – “best book in political science” – and a well-deserved honour for you. K.
