THE WALTER BAGEHOT RESEARCH COUNCIL ON NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY, established by Dr. Henry Paolucci in the mid-sixties, was named after the great British political economist and man of letters, Walter Bagehot, founder and for many years editor of The Economist, one of the most important journals of the time.
Under the aegis of the Bagehot Council, Dr. Paolucci edited for over 30 years State of the Nation, a monthly newsletter dedicated to current issues dealing with American domestic and foreign policy. His own books, like the classic War Peace and the Presidency (1969), and his last, Iran, Israel and the United States (1995), are consistent indicators of his extraordinary grasp of political matters and display the range and accuracy of his political insights.
After Dr. Paolucci's death on January 1, 1999, The Bagehot Council Board of Directors was enlarged and at its first meeting, chose a new president, Ronald F. Docksai, Ph.D., a former student and colleague of Dr. Paolucci and himself a Bagehot scholar. The Board also voted on a new long-range agenda, which included the establishment of "The Bagehot Council/Henry Paolucci Publishers' 'Book Award," with an annual prize of $2,000. The competition is open to publishers, here and abroad, who may submit up to three books issued the previous year.
The first award was presented on October 5, 2000 at the City Club in Washington D.C. to DR. THOMAS G. WEST for his book Vindicating the Founders (published by Rowan and Littlefield).
The Bagehot Council is a Related Group of the American Political Science Association and has held meetings at the annual APSA convention since the early seventies.
The Walter Bagehot Research Council on National Sovereignty is a not-for-profit educational foundation. For more information about the Bagehot Council or the Henry Paolucci Book Award, write to:
