Prizes for What Blood Won't Tell
Posted by Dan Ernst
We've previously noted that Ariela Gross, USC Law, received the James Willard Hurst Prize of the Law and Society Association for What Blood Won’t Tell (Harvard University Press, 2008), which "recounts stories of racial identity trials in American courts, from the early republic well into the 20th century." (LHB's original post on the book is here; a review, here.) Now a USC press release announced that the book has also won the Lillian Smith Book Award and a prize from the Race, Ethnicity, and Politics Section of the American Political Science Association. Congratulations to Professor Gross!
