The 2013 Prize

For the 2013 competition, we have received 94 eligible publications from publishers and individuals across the globe (viewable here).

Of these, the Adjudicating Committee chose seventeen to form the Long List as the best exemplars of all the 2013 publications we received. From these books, six were selected to form the Short List.

The Adjudicating Committee decided to award the 2013 Prize to Sir Peter Stothard forAlexandria: The Last Nights of Cleopatra (Granta Books). It was presented to him in the annual ceremony last November at the Athenaeum, Pall Mall.
