Dr Claire Elridge's book 'From Empire to Exile: History and Memory within the pied-noir and harki communities, 1962 - 2012' has been shortlisted for the RHS Gladstone Prize

'From Empire to Exile' is one of 6 titles to have been shortlisted for the Royal Historical Society's 2017 Gladstone Prize.

In honour of the value Gladstone placed on the study of history, the Gladstone Memorial Trust made it possible for the Royal Historical Society to launch the Gladstone History book prize in 1998 on the centenary of Gladstone’s death. The prize offers an annual award of £1,000 for a work of history on a topic not primarily related to British history that is the author’s first sole book publication.
