Viking had two winners at this past weekend’s Los Angeles Times Book Prizes. Napoleon: A Life, the definitive biography of the great soldier-statesman by New York Timesbestselling author Andrew Roberts (Viking), was named the winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the Biography category.  Napoleon was a New York Times bestseller and an Amazon Best Book of the Month in November 2014, and received excellent reviews in the New York Times Book Review, Wall Street Journal, and The Economist, among others. Adam Tooze’s critically acclaimed book The Deluge: The Great War, America and the Remaking of the Global Order, 1916 – 1931 won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for History. In this wide-ranging historical tome, Tooze revisits World War I and examines its legacy. Tooze argues that American economic and military power changed the global order in ways that are still being felt today. The New York Times Book Review had this to say: “Epic in scope, boldly argumentative, deftly interweaving military and economic narratives, The Deluge is a splendid interpretive history.” Congratulations to our award-winning authors and their publishing teams.
