The award is the largest non-fiction historical literature prize in the world given to an author whose work has had a profound literary, social and academic impact on the field.
The Cundill International Prize and Lecture in History stands out from the crowd of literary prizes by its international scope and generous monetary value. Each year, beginning in November 2008 and ending in 2012, McGill University will grant a first prize of $75,000 and two second prizes of $10,000 each. The Cundill Foundation announced that the recipients will be selected by an independent jury composed of “at least five internationally distinguished and qualified individuals.”Prize website
