orenstein_mitchellMitchell A. Orenstein of Johns Hopkins University has won the 2009 Levine Prize for his book Privatizing Pensions: The Transnational Campaign for Social Security Reform (Princeton University Press, 2008).  The Levine Prize is awarded annually by SOG and Governance to a book that makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration, takes an explicitly comparative perspective, and is written in an accessible style.  The award committee complimented Orenstein for “a penetrating analysis . . . of interest to a wide range of scholars and policymakers.”  The committee also gave an honorable mention to David E. Lewis of Vanderbilt University for his book The Politics of Presidential Appointments. Read more about this year’s prizewinners.
