Let's Just Say, 'No Mourning Here'

Renowned sociologist Professor Baruch Kimmerling of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem died Sunday after a long battle with cancer. He was 67.

Kimmerling was one of the first to apply post-colonial theories to the Zionist movement, and also involved himself in the study of hegemony within Israeli society.

Despite his lack of training as an historian, Kimmerling was identified with "the new historians," although he actually preceded them by a good number of years.
