Richard Hart - socialist historian

I was saddened to learn about the passing earlier today of Richard Hart, a great Jamaican socialist historian - indeed one of the great historians of the modern working class in the Anglophone Caribbean (and also an important trade union activist who played his part in the making of that class himself). I never met him, but had the fortune to correspond with him - his numerous works were a tremendous contribution. My condolences to his friends, family and comrades. RIP.
