CONGRATULATIONS to Alison Vacca.
The Central Eurasian Studies Society has given her their 2018 book award, for best humanities/history book in her field. The award recognizes Non-Muslim Provinces under Early Islam: Islamic Rule and Iranian Legitimacy in Armenia and Caucasian Albania. (Cambridge University Press, 2017). Chosen from a list of five finalists, the book was recognized for “scholarly merit, argumentative scope, and felicity of style.”
The award was presented last month at the CESS Annual Conference.
