The Stansky Book Prize, formerly the Albion Book Prize, of $500 is awarded annually by the North American Conference on British Studies for the best book published anywhere by a North American scholar on any aspect of British studies since 1800. The author must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada and be living in either country at the time of the award.  Nominations may be made by the author or by the publisher of the book.  A publisher may nominate more than one title each year but should use discretion and not overburden the Prize Committee.

The 2012 competition covers books published in 2011.  Separate copies of the letter of nomination and of the book nominated should be sent by April 1, 2012 to each member of the Prize Committee (only books sent to every committee member can be considered).  For prompt attention, mark packages "NACBS Prize Committee."
