Six Cambridge books make the history ‘Book of the Year’ longlist
Organised jointly by the publishers Longman and History Today, the award is designed to foster a wider understanding of (and enthusiasm for) history.
The winning book will have contributed significantly to making its subject accessible and rewarding to the general reader of history, while displaying innovative research and interpretation in their field.
With over 100 nominations, for titles published between October 2010 and September 2011, the entries were narrowed down to twenty books by a panel of judges. Cambridge University Press has six books on the longlist.
Those six books are:
- The Social Universe of the English Bible, Naomi Tadmor
- The Rule of Moderation, Ethan H. Shagan
- Children in the Roman Empire, Christian Laes
- Sacred Violence, Brent D. Shaw
- Evening's Empire, Craig Koslofsky
- Shattering Empires, Michael A. Reynolds

The shortlist will be announced in December.
