James W. McGuire, winner of the Stein Rokkan Prize 2011

The ISSC is delighted to announce that the winner of the XVIth Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research (2011) is James W. McGuire, for his work Wealth, Health, and Democracy in East Asia and Latin America, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2010.

The Stein Rokkan Prize Committee met on May 27 and May 28, 2021 in Florence to select the winner from amongst 26 submissions. The Committee was impressed by McGuire’s monograph not only because of its sophisticated methodology, the broad data base, the intimate knowledge of cases and the innovative and significant findings. This outstanding work also speaks to four literatures at the same time: demography, social policy, democratization studies and development studies.
