Gary J. Bass, professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton, is the winner of the 2014 Lionel Gelber Prize for his most recent book, "The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger, and a Forgotten Genocide." The Lionel Gelber Prize honors the world's best nonfiction book on foreign affairs. 

Jury Chair William Thorsell, MPA '72 called the book "a brilliant portrait" and "an epic tale told with verve and authority about war and diplomacy in toxic embrace." 

The prize is presented annually by the Lionel Gelber Foundation in partnership with Foreign Policy Magazine and the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto. Bass will accept the award at the University of Toronto on April 24.
