The World History Association Bentley Book Prize is an annual literary award given by the World History Association. It was first awarded in 1999 as the World History Association Book Prize; the name was changed in 2012 to honor Jerry H. Bentley.[1][2][3] The prize is $500. As of 2013, five of the winning books had been published by Cambridge University Press.[4]

It should not be confused with the Jerry Bentley Prize in World History, a similar book prize established in 2014 by the American Historical Association.[5]
