The RHS recently announced the shortlists for its 2021 Gladstone and Whitfield Book Prizes. Here, we introduce you to the first set of authors shortlisted for the Gladstone Prize, via a series of short videos. The RHS Gladstone Prize is awarded annually for a first book relating to a subject other than British and Irish History.

In the videos, authors introduce you to their work, the ideas that shaped their research, and their shortlisted book. Further Gladstone Prize videos will be released in the coming days.

The winners of this year’s book prizes will be announced at the annual RHS Awards Ceremony for Publications, Teaching and Research – held online at 5.30pm on Friday 23 July.
