Books published by BYU Press receive scholarly awards

From Mormon History Association

Two books published by Brigham Young University Press received awards at the recent annual meeting of the Mormon History Association.

“An Advocate for Women: The Public Life of Emmeline B. Wells, 1870–1920,” written by Carol Cornwall Madsen, received the association’s Best Book Award. The book shows how one woman played major roles in controversial issues that involved women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and women in general.

“Taking the Gospel to the Japanese, 1901–2001,” edited by Reid L. Neilson and Van C. Gessel, received the Geraldine McBride Woodward Award honoring the best publication on the international history of Mormonism.

“This book represents the best scholarship from the best scholars on the subject of Mormonism in Japan,” Neilson said. It’s also the first full publication on the history of the Church in Japan written in English.

The Mormon History Association is a nonprofit organization devoted to studying and understanding all aspects of the history of the Church of Jesus Christ. It was founded in 1965 and is an affiliate member of the American Historical Association and a member of the Western History Association.
