Concluding its annual meeting in Chicago on April 25, the Association of American Geographers recognized UC Press with its Publication Award for “long-term commitment to publishing excellent research in geography” that spans the breadth of the discipline. Since 1913, the Press has published innovative scholarship of by and for geographers, with recent titles including Atlas of Yellowstone, Mountain Geography, Unfathomable City, and an updated edition of Agrarian Dreams. In accepting the award, Senior Editor Blake Edgar thanked the authors and readers of our geography books for their insights and interest and vowed to continue publishing work worthy of this honor.

During the same ceremony, author and anthropologist Seth M. Holmes of UC Berkeley received the James M. Blaut Award from the AAG’s Cultural and Political Ecology Specialty Group for his book Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies: Migrant Farmworkers in the United States.
