We have just heard the following sad news from Justin McDaniel on the TLC list:

I am very sad to announce the news of the passing of one of the greatest scholars of Southeast Asian Studies in the last century. Grant Evans, author of numerous ground-breaking books and friend and mentor to many people in the field, passed away from cancer on 16 September 2014. I thank Ian Baird and Nick Enfield for informing me. They have no details about his memorial at this time, but I will send any information out when I hear. He passed away in his home with friends and family.

Thanks to Philip Taylor for the advice.

As well as editing Where China Meets Southeast Asia and contributing to such other NIAS publications as Contesting Visions of the Lao Past, Grant undertook peer reviews for us and generally offered critical support to many scholars in the field. He will be sorely missed.
