The David and Elaine Spitz Prize is awarded every year for the best book in liberal and/or democratic theory published two years earlier (e.g., the 2009 prize was awarded to a book published in 2007).
Books which are primarily historical (rather than theoretical), together with textbooks and edited books, are ineligible. Publishers and individuals may nominate books by sending copies marked "Regarding Spitz Prize" to the Prize Committee members. The deadline for the submission of candidate books is May 1st. Each committee member can be emailed by clicking on their name below, or as a whole by clicked "Spitz Prize Committee".
