David Brion Davis receives Emerson Award for book
David Brion Davis has been awarded the Phi Beta Kappa Society's 2007 Ralph Waldo Emerson Award for his book "Inhuman Bondage: The Rise and Fall of Slavery in the New World."
The Emerson Award is offered for scholarly studies that contribute significantly to interpretations of the intellectual and cultural condition of humanity.
Established in 1960, this award may recognize work in the fields of history, philosophy and religion. These fields are conceived in sufficiently broad terms to permit the inclusion of appropriate work in related fields such as anthropology and the social sciences.
The prize will be awarded in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 7.
