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.

Recipients must be a current member of ISA and the Global Health Section. Books eligible for the award must fall into the broadly defined category of global health. This includes, but is not limited to, books on global health security, global health governance, political economy of global health, human rights, health and development, international actors (e.g. institutions, social movements) and global health.
