    Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond

    by Martin A. Lee

    Martin Lee

    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 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 third book, The Beast Reawakens,an in-depth examination of the resurgence of fascism; published  in 1997; 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."
