Rogin spent a year at Makerere University in Uganda, then taught Political Science at UC Berkeley from 1963 until his death
in 2001. Rogin belonged to the "Berkeley school" of political theory, and his work is notable for its critique of American
imperialism, and its interdisciplinarity. In addition to political science, Rogin taught courses in the humanities and social
sciences, including ones on film, Marxism, race and racism, and feminism. He also taught classes in English, comparative literature,
history, American studies, sociology, and ethnic studies. Rogin received the Award for Distinguished Teaching and, in 1996,
was among the first group at Berkeley to be honored with a Chancellor's Professorship. Rogin served on the editorial committee
of UC Press for several decades and was a regular contributor to the London Review of Books. Rogin died in Paris in 2001;
