Best non-fiction book on international affairs OLIVER BULLOUGH Basic Books "Let Our Fame be Great: Journeys among the Defiant People of the Caucasus" Oliver Bullough's book is an ambitious and lively mix of history and reportage from the Caucasus, a region that is chronically misunderstood and under-reported, yet where the violent dispersion of indigenous populations unfortunately has lasting and universal relevance. The judges award a citation for excellence to Seymour Topping's memoir, On the Front Lines of the Cold War (see below). The book deserves special recognition for its humane vision, glimpses behind-the-scenes, and thoughtful conclusions stemming from Topping's extraordinary career as a reporter and editor.
