book cover

Yaroslav Trofimov has won the Washington Institute of Near East Policy's Gold Prize
for The Siege of Mecca (Anchor), a gripping account of the takeover of Islam's holiest shrine. The Bronze Prize went to Anthony Pagden for Worlds at War (Random House), a stunning work of history that delves deep into the roots of the "clash of civilizations" between East and West. The Washington Institute Book Prize is awarded annually to three outstanding new books that have illuminated the Middle East for American readers. With this prize, The Washington Institute seeks to acknowledge the very best new works on the region.
