This biography details the life and work of British animal rights activist Ronnie Lee (b. 1951), founder of the radical Animal Liberation Front. It describes his family history and early years; his early education and attendance at Saint Michael's College; his vegetarianism and early working life; his move to veganism and involvement in the Hunt Saboteurs Association; his founding of Greyhound Action, the Band of Mercy (predecessor to the Animal Liberation Front), and the Animal Liberation Front and his role as press officer; his arrests and prison sentences; his political band, Total Attack; his relationships; and his work with the Green Party. Lee's A Greenprint for Animal Liberation and Animal Liberation: An End to Isolationism are included in an appendix, as is an interview with him published in Ballast magazine.
