Craig Heron is a Professor of History at York University. Influenced by E.P. Thompson, he is considered to be one of the founders of the "New Labour History", which brought Marxist theory to the study of Canada's working-class.

In the 1970s Heron was a key member of New Hogtown Press, a left-wing Canadian publisher pioneering the field of activist-oriented working class and social history.

The author of numerous works on the Canadian labour movement, Heron has recently shifted towards the more fashionable cultural history field, authoring Booze: A Distilled History in 2003. He is past president of the Canadian Historical Association.
