See also: Recent Awards | Book of the Year Citations | The Thomas J. Wilson Memorial Prize
The Virginia and Warren Stone Prize, established in 1995, is awarded periodically to an Outstanding Book on Education and Society published by Harvard University Press.
The winning books have been works of history, social science, psychology, and pedagogy, and have been intended for academic or general readers. What they have in common is a broad and interdisciplinary scope, an ambitious and subtle synthesis of research, and insistence on the impact of educational tradition and change, from pre-K through professional schools, on contemporary and future society.
