Allen Scott on Edward Soja in Critical Planning

Critical Planning Journal, Volume 22: Cities and Regions in CrisisAllen Scott remembers his friend and colleague Edward Soja in the latest issue of Critical Planning (open access). Here’s the first paragraph:

Ed Soja died in the evening of Sunday November 1st, 2015, after an extended illness. His departure represents a huge loss to his many friends and colleagues both here in Los Angeles and all over the world. Ed was in every sense larger than life. He had an imposing physical presence and an enormous personality. He was also gifted with an extraordinarily fertile mind that took him persistently to the intellectual frontiers of geography, planning and social enquiry generally. His astonishing (one of Ed’s favorite words) verbal capacities served him well not only in his written work, but also in his more direct interaction with others, from his inspired teaching to public debate. His way with words seemed to be virtually inexhaustible and sometimes, to be frank, a bit overpowering.
