I join with Jesse in mourning the loss of a friend, a mentor, and an inspiration to us all. But Al's enduring influence will continue to resonate around the world. Only a few days ago, Shane White and I talked to a new group of postgrads about Al's enduring influence on the shape of American history. Last week, my undergrads discussed his essay on the Radicalism of the American Revolution in their last week of tutorials. Tomorrow, I'm meeting a new Honours student who has been inspired by Al's work and wants to look again at the disaffected in the Revolutionary era. I'm surrounded by his legacy here in my office in Sydney. Al will be missed, terribly. But he cannot and will not be forgotten. Mike McDonnell Department of History University of Sydney Australia
