Gabriel Jackson (born March 10, 1921) is an American Hispanist, historian and journalist. He was born in Mount Vernon, New York in 1921.[1] Since his retirement he has lived in Barcelona, Spain.

A victim of McCarthyism,[2] he studied at Harvard and Stanford before attaining his doctorate at Université de Toulouse. A Fulbright scholar (1960–1961),[3] he obtained his professorship in 1965 and is Professor Emeritus at University of California, San Diego.

A disciple of both Jaume Vicens i Vives and the prominent French historian Pierre Vilar, Jackson has been a regular collaborator of the Spanish daily El País for many years.

In 1966 he was awarded the American Historical Association's Herbert Baxter Adams Prize,[4] and in 2002, Spain's prestigious Nebrija Prize from the University of Salamanca.[3]
