This volume contains background information about the development of Pulitzer Prizewinning book awards from 1917 – 2000. The fact-oriented literature categories were called „History“, „Biography or Autobiography“ and „General Nonfiction“, while the areas of Belles-Lettres are represented by award groupe like „Novel“, „Fiction“ and „Poetry“. Thanks to the availability of the confidential Jury Reports it was possible to reconstruct the decision-making processes within the evaluating committees.

Heinz-Dietrich Fischer, EdD, PhD, is Professor Emeritus at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany.
