Peter Marcuse is professor emeritus of Urban Planning at Columbia University and was involved in the demonstrations at the University of California-Berkeley in 1968. His father, Herbert Marcuse, was a founding sponsor of In These Times and was one of the philosophers who provided a theoretical basis for the 1968 protest movements and the New Left.
