The article presents obituaries for British college professors Ralph Miliband and David J.V. Jones. Since Ralph Miliband's untimely death in May, many generous tributes have been paid to him, and rightly so. Ralph was a wonderful person, a fine socialist and an outstanding intellectual and teacher; and many people have spoken or written of their experiences of him under one or more of those headings. It is still possible to read "Parliamentary Socialism" and "The State in Capitalist Society" and see both their contemporary relevance and their consistent radicalism. But if they are powerful texts now, and they are, they were pathbreakers when first they came out. Meanwhile, David Jones, a scholar and friend, whose untimely and tragic death, has robbed social history of one of its foremost figures. Born into a working-class family in rural mid-Wales, his father worked on the land. He felt keenly about the plight of ordinary men and women, the injustices they endured, and the struggles and resistance they mounted.
