In memoriam J.H.J.M. (Jan) van Heugten (1957-2018)

It is with great grief and bewilderment that I must inform you about the untimely death on December 31, 2018, of my long-time research partner, friend, co-author, criticaster and website editor for over 30 years, Drs Jan van Heugten. His rather sudden demise after a devastating illness came rapidly and merciless, leaving all of those around him stunned and dazed.

Being one of the very few truly well-informed and professional academics on Afghanistan and Pakistan contemporary history in the Netherlands, his untimely demise means the irreplaceable loss of sound, thorough perspectives on developments in and concerning both countries.
