Ziblatt wins four awards for 2017 book

Ziblatt wins four awards for 2017 book

Congratulations to Daniel Ziblatt on winning not one but four awards for his groundbreaking book Conservative Parties and the Birth of Democracy (Cambridge University Press, 2017). In August, Ziblatt will be awarded the 2018 Woodrow Wilson award by the American Political Science Association (APSA)– considered the most prestigious award in the U.S. for a political science book. The APSA will also be awarding him two more best book prizes—from the sections of Comparative Democratization and European Politics and Society. Ziblatt also earned the 2018 Barrington Moore Prize for best book in comparative and historical sociology by the American Sociological Association. 2018 has been an amazing year for CES Resident Faculty Ziblatt whose more recent co-authored book (with Steve Levitsky) How Democracies Die hit the New York Times bestseller list.
