The American Historical Association awarded the J. Russell Major Prize 2010 for the best work in English on any aspect of French history to Stuart Carroll.

The judges of this year's J. Russell Major Prize named Stuart Carroll's book Martyrs and Murderers: The Guise Family and the Making of Europe, published by Oxford University Press, as the best book about French history written in English. The American Historical Association will award Stuart the prize at the Association's 125th annual meeting in Boston this January.

Stuart is twice-winner of the Nancy Roelker prize for the best essay written on early modern French History and is the author of Blood and Violence in Early Modern France, also published by Oxford University Press, and Noble Power during the French Wars of Religion, published by Cambridge University Press.
