John F. Richards Book Prize

The AHA has approved the creation of the John F. Richards Book Prize in South Asian History, named after the distinguished historian from Duke. Sumit Guha has agreed to chair our fundraising committee, which is also comprised of Yasmin Saikia and Chitralekha Zutshi. Our fundraising team is hard at work and may be in touch in the near future. Please do contact our
team if you know of anyone who wishes to support our efforts. And please join me in thanking Profs. Guha, Saikia, and Zutshi for taking on this difficult task.
