Dr. Norman Caulfield, professor of history at Fort Hays State University, received the Harvey Johnson Best Book Award from the Southwest Council on Latin American Studies (SCOLAS) at the organization's annual meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The award, given annually to the author of the best book published on Latin America, carries a cash prize of $1,000.
SCOLAS is the largest regional organization affiliate of the Latin American Studies association in the United States.
Caulfield's Book, "Nafta and Labor in North America," was published by the University of Illinois Press in 2010. It is a finalist for the Philip A. Taft prize annually given for the best book on American labor history by the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University.
