“It has been wonderful to see that our quick-take world still has a valued place for 800-page books that take more than a decade to write. I wasn’t always sure that would be the case as I slogged my way through the documents over so many years.”

—Professor of history and American studies Beverly Gage ’94, telling YaleNews how it felt to win this year’s Pulitzer Prize in history for her book G-Man: J. Edgar Hoover and the Making of the American Century. Jing Tsu, the John M. Schiff Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures and of Comparative Literature, was a finalist in the general nonfiction category for her book Kingdom of Characters: The Language Revolution That Made China Modern.
