Applications are now open for the 2017 CHASS Australia Book Prize. This is a cash prize of $3,500 for a non-fiction book/e-book in any Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) area published between 1 January and 31 December 2016.
The prize will be awarded to the author whose book, in the opinion of the judges, contributes most to cultural and intellectual life in Australia.
Books should be by a single author or, at most, two authors - edited collections are not eligible.
Any author can submit up to four books.

Klaus Neumann won the prize last year for his book, Across the seas: Australia's response to refugees: A history. You can find it online at the JCU Library.
