The Association for Humanist Sociology is pleased to announce their 2017 Betty and Alfred McClung Lee Book Award. Authors, publishers, and AHS members may nominate books for consideration. The winner will be recognized at our annual meeting November 1-5, 2017 in Havana, Cuba. Nominations should be for Sociology or interdisciplinary social science books that approach their subjects from a humanist perspective.

 As our Mission states:

Humanist sociologists strive as professionals, as scholars and as activists to uncover and address social issues, working with others to lessen the pain of social problems. We view people not merely as products of social forces, but also as shapers of social life, capable of creating social orders in which everyone's potential can unfold. Difficult times give humanist sociologists opportunities to apply their special skills and perspectives for the purpose of creating a more humane world. Additional information about AHS is available at www.ahssociology.org

Eligible books should have been published in the calendar year 2016 or the first half of 2017. If a book was submitted for last year's consideration, it cannot be nominated again. Edited volumes and textbooks are not eligible for this award.

To nominate a book, authors/publishers/nominators should e-mail a letter of nomination with the subject line “AHS 2017 Book Award Nomination” to Anastacia Schulhoffat   Authors/publishers should then send one copy of the book to each of the award committee members listed below.

The deadline for nominations is June 15, 2017
