Book Award

Each year, the Bertrand Russell Society considers whether a recently published book in Russell studies merits special recognition by the Bertrand Russell Society. This special recognition is the Bertrand Russell Society Book Award, and is presented at the annual meeting in years in which a sufficiently meritorious book has been published. The Society does not award this distinction every year. A list of previous winners is given below.
