Domestic Sources of Foreign Economic Policy”, won the 1995 American Political Science Association Woodrow Wilson Award for the best book in government, politics, or international relations. A Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Simmons earned her Ph.D. in government at Harvard University in 1991.
