We are delighted to announce that six books have been shortlisted for the 2022 BISA-IPEG book prize (for best book published in the field of IPE in 2021).

The shortlisted books are:

  • Craig Berry, Pensions Imperilled: The Political Economy of Private Pensions Provision in the UK (Oxford UP)
  • Liam Campling and Alejandro Colás, Capitalism and the Sea: The Maritime Factor in the Making of the Modern World (Verso)
  • Emma Dowling, The Care Crisis: What Caused It and How Can We End It? (Verso)
  • Lee Jones and Shahar Hameiri, Fractured China: How State Transformation Is Shaping China's Rise (Cambridge UP)
  • Peter Newell, Power Shift: The Global Political Economy of Energy Transitions (Cambridge UP)
  • Cecilia Rikap, Capitalism, Power and Innovation: Intellectual Monopoly Capitalism Uncovered (Routledge)

A number of important, timely and fascinating books were nominated, so it was not an easy job to whittle the field down to these six. However, as a collective, the Voting Panel and IPEG Convenorship feel that the shortlisted books offer a brilliant snapshot of the diversity of excellent work that is going on in the field as a whole. Huge congratulations to all of the authors. The panel will read the six shortlisted books over the summer and report back in the autumn.
