John Green has been a journalist for most of his working life. He has written several biographies of political figures, including a well-received biography of Friedrich Engels. He was co-editor of the Marxist arts magazine Artery (1970 -81) and, after studying in the GDR, a documentary film maker for twenty years, covering social and political issues throughout the world.
