Neil Smith (1954-2012)

Shortly before this issue went to press, we were desperately saddened to hear of the untimely death of Neil Smith. Neil will be known to many readers of this journal as a co-editor between 1993 and 2003, as a regular contributor, and as a long-term supporter of the combination of geography, social theory, and politics that sustains this journal’s work.

Neil held posts in his native Scotland and in the United States, most recently as Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Neil was highly regarded for his truly original work in a number of fields, particularly in his wonderful books Uneven Development, The New Urban Frontier, American Empire and The Endgame of Globalization. He was known for his incisive analyses of contemporary events, many of which appeared in this journal as commentaries, as well as for his theoretically and historically informed work on the politics of space and place. He had a breadth of knowledge and range of interests that brought him into contact with many interlocutors. A regular book editor, he was known for his facilitating role in the discipline and beyond, as well as for his encouragement and support for scholars at all stages of their careers. He was a wonderful person as well as a brilliant scholar, warm and funny, incisive and generous. Neil was a critical geographer in all senses. He will be greatly missed.
