Sponsored by the Hungarian Studies Association, the goal of the book prize is to recognize quality scholarship in Hungarian studies and support Hungarian studies in the United States. The book prize is awarded biennially for the most important contribution to Hungarian studies originally published in English in the previous two calendar years. The HSA Book Prize carries a cash award and is presented at the meeting of the Hungarian Studies Association at the annual convention of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
