He was known for his political activism surrounding the war in Vietnam and Civil Rights. Under his leadership, Brandeis became a center of activity in the Soviet Jewry movement.

He earned his PhD here in 1972 and is the author of eight books, including Learning on the Left: Political Profiles of Brandeis University. He’s been a visiting professor at Hebrew University, the Sorbonne and the University of Munich.
