Winner of the British Academy Prize for Global Cultural Understanding
Waves Across the South
‘Waves Across the South is a riot of ingenuity, a truly powerful and new history of revolutions and empires, re-imagined through the environmental lens of the sea. The jury was spellbound by Sivasundaram’s skill in combining compelling story-telling with meticulous research. Even as a work of world history it speaks directly to the politics and military interventions of today.’ PATRICK WRIGHT, Chair of Judges for the British Academy Prize for Global Cultural Understanding
