Paul Rogat Loeb is an American social and political activist. Loeb was born in 1952 in Berkeley, California. He graduated from Stanford University and subsequently attended New York's New School for Social Research and worked actively to end the Vietnam War. He also began his writing and speaking career during this time. Loeb's writings have appeared in numerous newspapers and journals. His first book, Nuclear Culture, examined the daily life of atomic weapons workers at the Hanford site in Tri-Cities, Washington. Hope In Hard Times portrayed ordinary Americans involved in grassroots peace activism. He has also written books examining student activism at universities, and his book Soul of a Citizen aimed to inspire citizen activists. His book The Impossible Will Take a Little While, an anthology of the achievements of activists in history who faced enormous obstacles, was named the #4 political book of 2004 by the History Channel and the American Book Association and won the Nautilus Book Award for best social change book of the year.
