Linda Villarosa’s “Under the Skin,” an exploration of racism’s impact on the American healthcare system, and Deborah Cohen’s history of a network of journalists who confronted fascism before World War II, “Last Call at the Hotel Imperial,” were among the winners of awards announced Tuesday by the J. Anthony Lukas Prize Project.

Villarosa won the $10,000 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for a nonfiction work that exemplifies reportorial and literary excellence, and Cohen the $10,000 Mark Lynton History Prize for “intellectual distinction” and “felicity of expression.”

The project also gave $25,000 awards to two books in progress that are “significant works of nonfiction on American topics of political or social concern”: Jesselyn Cook’s “The Quiet Damage: QAnon and the Destruction of the American Family” and Mike Hixenbaugh’s “Uncivil: One Town’s Fight over Race and Identity, and the New Battle for America’s Schools.”
