Kulp-Wright Book Awards for 2016

The Kulp-Wright Book Award is presented annually by the American Risk and Insurance Association to the author(s) of a book considered to be the most influential one published on the subjects of risk management and insurance. The author(s) of the winning publication will be presented with an award certificate at the 2017 Annual Meeting which will be held on August 6-9 in Toronto, Canada.

The Kulp-Wright Book Award committee is reviewing publications for the 2017 award. To be eligible for the 2017 Kulp-Wright Book Award, the book must have been published in 2015. The primary contribution of the book should lie in the fields of risk management and insurance, and should appeal to a broad cross-section of persons concerned with the fields of risk management and insurance.

The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2017. If you would like to suggest that the committee review a specific book, please send the title, author(s), and publisher information to Casey Rothschild at crothsch@wellesley.edu.
