Andrew Price-Smith, one of the leading scholars of global health security and the David Packard Smith Professor of International Relations at Colorado College, died of cancer on July 11, 2019. His 2001 book, The Health of Nations: Infectious Disease, Environmental Change, and Their Effects on National Security and Development, was one of the first books that combined political science with global health, and it made a seminal impact on the burgeoning field of global health security. To recognize his legacy and the impact he made on global health politics, we have renamed the GHS Book Award the Andrew Price-Smith Book Award. We hope that the winner of this award will carry on his legacy of engaged scholarship, creative thinking, and relentless curiosity.
Congratulations to Kenneth C. Shadlen, the 2019 recipient of the GHS Book Prize, for his work "Coalitions and Compliance: the political economy of pharmaceutical patents in Latin America"
