Martin A. Lee is an American author and activist who has written books and articles on far-right movements, terrorism, media issues, and drug politics.

Lee has an undergraduate degree in philosophy from the University of Michigan. He has been a guest teacher-in-residence at the University of Illinois, and has lectured at many colleges and universities, including Harvard University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Johns Hopkins University, and the American University of Paris. In 1994 he was given the Pope Foundation Award for Investigative Journalism.

Lee was a co-founder of the media watch group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), a group formed in 1986 to combat corporate and establishment media bias. He was the first full-time editor of FAIR's magazine Extra!, and later served as the publication's publisher.

Lee's first book, The CIA, LSD and the Sixties Rebellion (co-authored with Bruce Shlain), was published in 1986 by Grove Press. Covering LSD's use by both the counterculture of the 1960s and by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in mind control experiments, the book was called by the San Francisco Chronicle "a generalist's history that should replace all others."

Lee's second book, Unreliable Sources: A Guide to Detecting Bias in News Media (co-authored with Norman Solomon), was both a distillation and expansion of his work with FAIR. Published in 1990 by Lyle Stuart, The Washington Post called the book "a worthy addition to the library of any student of American news media, social structure and political science."

Lee's most recent book, The Beast Reawakens, an in-depth examination of the resurgence of fascism, was published by Little, Brown in 1997; a revised paperback edition was issued by Routledge in 2000. Calling it a "compelling, intelligent investigation which reads more like a thriller than a history lesson," Publishers Weekly said it "contributes much toward understanding the politics of hatred." The New York Times Book Review described it as "a vivid survey of fascist resurgence."
