Giovanni Arrighi

I've only just heard the news that Giovanni Arrighi, who spoke in Dublin last year, died in June. A friend passed on this link to his memorial site  and to an interview on his life and work conducted by David Harvey. For those of you going to the American Sociological Association conference this year, there will be a session on his work at 4.30 on August the 8th. Tis sad, so it is.
