Barry Hindess (1939-2018)

I have been hearing reports that Barry Hindess sadly died earlier this week. There is a brief notice in The Canberra Times. I only met him once, when I was at ANU for a term and we had lunch together. But I’ve known his work for much longer, including his 1975 book with Paul Hirst, Pre-Capitalist Modes of Production, and Discourses of Power: From Hobbes to Foucault in 1996. He was important in the Anglophone reception of Althusser, as well as Foucault, not least for his work with Theoretical Practice and the book he co-edited with Mitchell Dean, Governing Australia.

Update: there are some tributes here.
