SRS Book Prize 2016: Winner Announced

The 2016 SRS book prize was awarded to Kate van Orden for her "Materialities: Books, Readers and the Chanson in Sixteenth Century Europe" (OUP, 2015). One further book was highly commended, Helmer Helmers, "The Royalist Republic: Literature, Politics and Religion in the Anglo-Dutch Public Sphere, 1639-1660" (CUP, 2015).

As ever, the judges were impressed by the high standard of the books entered for the prize and choosing a winner was extremely difficult. The judges are grateful to all the publishers who sent in their books to the committee.
