Marcuse is the son of philosopher and critical theorist Herbert Marcuse. He was born in Berlin and immigrated to the US in 1933 at the beginning of the Third Reich. He obtained a JD from Yale Law School (1952) and a PhD from UC Berkeley in City and Regional Planning (1972). He began his career as a lawyer in New Haven and Waterbury, Connecticut, where he served on the Board of Alderman and participated in the Freedom Summer in Mississippi in 1964. After he completed his Ph.D. he became a professor of urban planning at UCLA from 1972 until 1975 and at Columbia University from 1975 to 2003. He has written extensively on the right to the city and the Occupy movement.
