Professor Paul Litt (Department of History and School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies) has been awarded the Canadian Historical Association’s coveted Political History Prize for Best Book of 2017.
Litt has received the award for his celebrated 2016 UBC Press released Trudeaumania. Trudeaumania delivers a spirited account of the phenomenon that swept Canada during the iconic rise of Pierre Trudeau.
Through its review of the cultural history of an era characterized by a passionate quest for a rejuvenated, modern nation, Trudeaumania is a vital read for anyone interested in Canada past or present.
The CHA Best Book prize is awarded annually for “an outstanding, well-written book judged to have made an original, significant, and meritorious contribution to the field of Canadian political history.”
