A victim of McCarthyism,[3] he studied at Harvard and Stanford before attaining his doctorate at Université de Toulouse. A Fulbright scholar (1960–1961),[4] he obtained his professorship in 1965 and was Professor Emeritus at University of California, San Diego.

A disciple of both Jaume Vicens i Vives and the prominent French historian Pierre Vilar, Jackson was 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,[5] and in 2002, Spain's prestigious Nebrija Prize from the University of Salamanca.[4]
