2020 BFE Book prize

Benjamin Tausig, a board member for the IGS, was awarded the 2020 BFE Book Prize for his 2019 monogram, Bangkok is Ringing: Sound, Protest, and Constraint (New York: OUP).

The 2020 Book Prize Panel - Ioannis Tsioulakis (Chair), Britta Sweers and Jonathan Stock - noted that Benjamin's book "is superbly written—it turns its own pages—and admirably represents the best new writing in ethnomusicology today".

The book is available on Amazon and Oxford University Press.



Eric Zolov, a history board member for the IGS, has recently published his book, The Last Good Neighbor: Mexico in the Global Sixties.

The Last Good Neighbor presents a revisionist account of Mexican domestic politics and international relations during the long 1960s, tracing how Mexico emerged from the shadow of FDR's Good Neighbor policy to become a geopolitical player in its own right during the Cold War.

The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and PDF.
