Jeremy Fergus Boissevain, 1928-2015

Henk Driessen

Despite his blessed age, it was a shock to receive the news that Jeremy Boissevain died at his home in Amsterdam on 26 June 2015. Just a few days earlier, he had read with much pleasure and satisfaction a positive review by Michael Herzfeld in the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute of his recent collection of “explorations into aspects of some societies in and from the Mediterranean” (Factions, Friends, Feasts. Anthropological Perspectives on the Mediterranean [Berghahn Books, 2013]). He had worked very hard on this volume, which turned out to be his final one.
