"This year's shortlisted books, as diverse as their subjects are, share the trait of being universally important and informative about the world we live in today," said Mitchell. "We thank the jury for their work in narrowing the field of 134 books nominated for this year's prize to these finalists."

The shortlist was chosen by jury members, Jared Bland currently the arts editor at The Globe and Mail and previously a senior editor at House of Anansi; John Fraser, a journalist and writer who served as master of Massey College from 1995 to 2014; and Anne Giardini, writer, director, lawyer and executive, and the Chancellor of Simon Fraser University.

The jury will announce the winner of the prize at a special presentation ceremony in Vancouver in February, 2014.
