John Urry, “an influential scholar who has shaped several fields of sociology, died suddenly, 18th March.”

There are some touching and interesting testimonials and memorials with his passing. I was always in awe of the scope of Urry as a thinker (so much so that, when asked, I felt almost professionally obligated to review one of his recent books).
