The Mershon Center's Edgar S. Furniss Book Award commemorates the founding director of the Mershon Center and is given annually to an author whose first book makes an exceptional contribution to the study of national and international security. The 2019 Furniss Book Award was awarded to Dmitry Chernobrov for his book, Public Perception of International Crises: Identity, Ontological Security and Self-Affirmation (Rowman & Littlefield International).
Please join us on March 3 where Chernobrov will join us to discuss his book and have time for Q&A and open discussion.
