Jock Young

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear friend and colleague, Jock Young. We have lost an immense figure who inspired a generation and will continue to inspire generations to come, not only in the world of critical criminology (and, of course, wider criminology) but the Common Study Programme in particular. Jock passed away peacefully on Saturday morning in Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, New York City. Many of you may have known he was ill, but not the full extent of his condition. Jock had anaplastic thyroid cancer. He approached this awful disease with courage and humour and up until Wednesday, whilst in hospital, was still commenting on his students’ essays and dissertations and working on his next book proposal.
