RIP Dennis Marsden

I was saddened to see that one of my old Sociology lecturers, Dennis Marsden, had died.

Dennis was one of those old lefties whose charming manner and humble demeanour belied an unwaveringly hard, if nuanced, anti-capitalism. His work on class in the education system is particularly useful but far more importantly I always found him to be a really lovely chap. He will be missed.

Thanks for posting this.

They're not making them like this any more - as you say, he will be missed.
