WJM Mackenzie Prize for best book published in Political Science for my book Rethinking Green Politics: Nature, Virtue and Progress. The citation read:
`Of the books submitted, some of high quality, this one was agreed to be in a class of its own.The book breaks new ground in `green' political theory, and in an engaging manner, educates those anxious to be good citizens and challenges those responsible for public policy, in a highly topical and globally important discourse. Barry's immanent critique, his insistence that we build on what there is, his resistance to the easy anti-statist line, his sane and balanced outlook, is intellectually brave in this often rather clamant territory. The analysis of ecological morality, individual stewardship, and collective responsibility provides an original and seminal treatise that advances the discipline as a whole'.
