ISI Book Award

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute gave Derek Beales its book award for his "Prosperity and Plunder." Congrats to Mr. Beales. For more ISI wisdom, try Choosing the Right College 2005.

Wilmington, DE--The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), a national academic organization headquartered in Wilmington, DE, is pleased to announce this year's recipient of the Henry Paolucci/Walter Bagehot Book Award: Derek Beales, author of "Prosperity and Plunder: European Catholic Monasteries in the Age of Revolution, 1650-1815."

This prestigious award was first launched two years ago by the Walter Bagehot Research Council, an organization founded by Professor Paolucci in the late sixties. Beginning in 2004, the annual award will be presented by ISI to a deserving scholar whose intellectual achievement--as made manifest in the form of a book published in the previous year--embodies the spirit, range, and scholarly rigor of the award's namesakes.

Walter Bagehot, a man of letters, was the founder and long-time editor of the Economist. Henry Paolucci, a Fulbright scholar and prolific author, taught at several institutions, including Columbia University.
