For his book Beyond Patriotic Phobias: Connections, Cooperation, and Solidarity in the Peruvian-Chilean Pacific World, history professor Joshua Savala has won an honorable mention for best book published on Peru in 2022. Awarded by the Peru section of the Latin American Studies Association, the prize is given to the “best book, on any topic, that contributes significantly to the advancement of knowledge about Peru.”

Savala’s book is a social history of collaboration and solidarity forged by Peruvians and Chileans from the mid-19th through early 20th centuries. Through careful archival work, Savala highlights the overlooked cooperative relationships of workers across borders, including maritime port workers, doctors, and the police. By following the movement of people, diseases, and ideas, the book reconstructs the circulation that created a South American Pacific world.
