Weighed in an Even Balance
Bellesiles, Michael A.
A defense of the author's scholarship in Arming America, in which he argued that few Americans owned firearms before the Civil War. Praised by reviewers, Arming America won the 2001 Bancroft Prize in American History and Diplomacy. Scholars criticized Bellesiles's research, however, and the Bancroft Prize was rescinded in 2002.
