Biography

Jonah Raskin is the author of The Radical Jack London. He left an East Coast university teaching position to participate in the 1970s radical counterculture as a free-lance journalist, returned to the academy in California in the 1980s to write probing studies of Abbie Hoffman and Allen Ginsberg, and reviews of northern California writers whom he styled as "natives, newcomers, exiles and fugitives." Beginning as a lecturer in English at Sonoma State University in 1981, he moved to chair of the Communications Studies Department from 1988 to 2007, while serving as a book reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle and the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.
