Benjamin Klein is editor of and contributor to New Settlers: Photographs of the Counterculture of New Mexico . This book tells the story of dropouts, renegades and utopians - disillusioned children of the middle class who settled in communes in northern New Mexico in the 1960s. Historian, Benjamin Klein is in a unique position to tell the tale; he spent his summers in El Rito with his hippie father and the school year with his mother immersed in the counter culture of the Bay Area. The historic photographs are by Irwin Klein, Benjamin's uncle. Benjamin Klein is currently a lecturer at California State University East Bay. His additional field of expertise is court culture in late 17th century England.
