For Markovits and Crosby, the book was a labor of love.

“We regard this prize with added delight by dint of our book’s topic which does not only bespeak our scholarly interest and commitment but also our personal passion,” Markovits said.

The Press is honored to work with a host of passionate faculty authors and are pleased to add Andrei Markovits and Katherine Crosby to our list of University of Michigan Press Book Award winners!
