He worked principally as a Senior Editor at LOOK Magazine and as a writer in Newsweek's foreign department. He has also written for other US publications including Atlantic, Harper's, New York, Saturday Review, Outside, New York, and The Sunday New York Times Magazine. As a journalist Shepherd covered stories primarily in sub-Saharan Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia) and the Middle East (Israel, Palestine). Shepherd is also the author of ten books, three of which made The New York Times best-seller list: Quotations from LBJ (with Christopher S. Wren); The Runner's Handbook (with Bob Glover); and The Adams Chronicles. Shepherd earned his Ph.D. at age 50 (Boston University) and then taught at Boston University, the University of Cambridge (UK) for six years, and, since 1988, at Dartmouth College. He retired in 2007 and has returned to writing full time. His tenth book, Hunger: The Biology and Politics of Starvation (with John Butterly), was published in October 2010. His eleventh will be published in 2013.
