Daniel Singer

THE DANIEL SINGER PRIZE

Daniel Singer believed in people taking control of their own lives and forging truly democratic institutions to introduce social and economic justice. He experienced the May–June 1968 explosion in France and the uprisings against oppressive regimes in Eastern Europe, writing “Prelude to Revolution” and the “Road to Gdansk” to chronicle the possibility of genuine popular revolution. A critic of Western capitalism and Eastern Stalinism, his analyses were based on deep knowledge, a biting sarcasm, and a thorough dislike of banal rhetoric. His final work “Whose Millennium: Theirs or Ours” combined his inspiring hopes with an astonishing ability to dissect the workings of power.

The Daniel Singer Foundation is seeking an original essay of no more than 5000 words to address some aspect of the current scene in the spirit that Singer exemplified. The winning essay will receive a prize of $2,500, and may be submitted in English, Spanish or French.

The essays will be judged by an international panel of distinguished scholars and activists, and the winner will be announced in December 2013.

Essays can be sent either by post or e-mail (preferred) to: The Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation, PO Box 2371, El Cerrito, CA 94530 USA; danielsingerfdn@gmail.com. Submissions must be received by August 31, 2013.
