Book prize for Ismay

Trust Among Strangers: Friendly Societies in Modern Britain (Cambridge University Press) by Associate Professor of History Penelope Ismay, was named co-winner of the 2019 Stansky Book Prize presented by North American Conference on British Studies. The Stansky Book Prize is awarded annually for the best book published anywhere by a North American scholar on any aspect of British studies since 1800. Ismay’s book provides a rich understanding of theories of responsibility to others and the nature of mutual self-help as it was practiced in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The NACBS called Trust Among Strangers “deeply researched and engagingly written.” More from BC News.
