Ten excellent books were submitted to the 1998 Literary Committee (David Chandler, Robert Holtman, David Markham, Jeanne Ojala, John Severn, and Donald Horward). The following awards have been made:

First Prize ($2500): David Gates, The Napoleonic Wars, 1803-1815 (Arnold Publishers and St. Martin's Press)

Second Prize ($1500): Ronald Ridley, Napoleon's Proconsul in Egypt: The Life and Times of Bernardino Drovetti (London: Rubicon Press)

The Academic Literary Awards are for the two best published articles written by graduate students. The prizes are $500 each:

Mary Katherine Cooney, "Madame de Montesquieu and the King of Rome"

Each of these publications has met the rigorous criteria established by the Literary Committee and represent a significant contribution to the study of the Napoleonic period. The INS takes great pleasure in congratulating each of these scholars on their commitment and achievement.
