The editors of Historical Materialism were shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Praful Bidwai. Praful was a keynote speaker at the HM Delhi conference and we were extremely pleased to have such an engaged, critical and open-minded intellectual involved with our event and our project of reinvigorating Marxist debate.
Praful will be missed by everyone committed to socialism, workers' rights and environmental justice. We share the grief of those who worked closely with him for an outstanding comrade.
