World History Association Book Prize

Professor of History Prasannan Parthasarathi has won the 2012 World History Association Book Prize for his work, Why Europe Grew Rich and Asia Did Not: Global Economic Divergence, 1600-1850. The WHA, considered the foremost organization for the promotion of world history through the encouragement of teaching, research, and publication, has awarded an annual book prize since 1999 to recognize outstanding contributions to world history. In Why Europe Grew Rich and Asia Did Not, Parthasarathi explores the long-debated question of why the path of economic development diverged between Europe and Asia in the 18th and 19th centuries.
