The 2012 Levine Book Prize has been awarded to Governing for the Long Term: Democracy and the Politics of Investment (Cambridge University Press, 2011), by Alan M. Jacobs. Jacobs is an associate professor of political science at the University of British Columbia. The 2012 Levine Prize committee was composed of Professors Kutsal Yesilkagit (Utrecht School of Governance, committee chair), Eliza Lee (University of Hong Kong), and Victor Lapuente (University of Gothenburg). The committee says that Jacobs’ book “should force us to rethink the usual political economy assumptions of politicians as short-sighted re-election seekers. . . . The book provides a trenchant reminder of the power of ideas about the future to shape decisions taken today.” Read more about the Prize and the committee’s decision.
