Associate Professor Paul Strangio‘s book Neither Power Nor Glory: 100 Years of Political Labor in Victoria, 1856-1956 (Melbourne University Publishing 2012) has been awarded the Henry Mayer Book Prize for Australian Politics. This is a biennial prize awarded by the Australian Political Studies Association for the best book on Australian politics published during the previous two years. Paul’s book had also previously won the highly competitive History Publication Award in the Victorian Community History awards in 2012.
Colleagues in Politics at Monash have now won the Henry Mayer Book Prize on two consecutive occasions. Professor James Walter’s book What were they thinking? The politics of ideas in Australia (2010) was the previous winner of the prize.
