Getting past the official pronouncements on the one side, and unprovable assertions on the other, this study gathers together the facts that are known, providing a concise yet comprehensive narrative. Among its contents: - Nearly 300 documented military encounters with UFOs. - Activities of over 50 Air Force, Navy, and Army bases relating to UFOs. - Analyses of the Roswell controversy, the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel,the Condon Committee Report, and more. - Description of the fight, and failure, to end UFO secrecy. - Thoughts on what it all meaan
Suppressed coverage of UFO phenomenon for security reasons.
Here is a book to intrigue both non-technical and more mechanically inclined UFO enthusiasts. Without making a case for the origins of UFOs, Hill argues that their functionality is feasible by applying established principles of physics to existing reports in which an amazingly consistent UFO behavior has been described. In language which is technically sound, but not so advanced that the layman could not understand, Hill works out several possible propulsion systems for these mysterious craft.
Patterned after the first volume published in 1964, The UFO Evidence, Volume II is much anticipated by the research community. The book reports 30 years of UFO sightings since 1964 with related data and descriptive features organized by category. Among the topics discussed are the now strongly established patterns of UFO sightings, the growing evidence worldwide that UFOs represent someone's technology, the history of government sponsored UFO investigations, and political and human responses to UFO sightings. The master chronology is an incredibly complete listing, which also refers the reader to pertinent sections in the book for fuller descriptions
An Air Force major is ordered to approach a brilliant UFO in his Phantom jet over Tehran. He repeatedly attempts to engage and fire on unusual objects heading right toward his aircraft, but his missile control is locked and disabled. Witnessed from the ground, this dogfight becomes the subject of a secret report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. In Belgium, an Air Force colonel investigates a series of widespread sightings of unidentified triangular objects, and he sends F-16s to attempt a closer look. Many hundreds of eyewitnesses, including on-duty police officers, file reports, and a spectacular photograph of an unidentifiable crafttt is retrieved and analyzed. Here at home, a retired chief of the FAA's Accidents and Investigations Division reveals the agency's response to a thirty-minute encounter between an aircraft and a gigantic UFO over Alaska, which occurred during his watch and is documented on radar. Now all three of these distinguished men have written breathtaking, firsthand accounts about these extraordinary incidents. They are joined by Air Force generals and a host of high-level sources - including Fife Symington III, former governor of Arizona, and Nick Pope, former head of the British Defence Ministry's UFO Investigative Unit - who have agreed to write their own detailed, personal stories about UFO encounters and investigations for the first time. They are coming forward now because of Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter who has spent the last ten years studying the still unexplained UFO phenomenon. Kean reviewed hundreds of government documents, aviation reports, radar data, and case studies with corroborating physical evidence. She carefully examined scientifically analyzed photographs and interviewed dozens of high-level officials and aviation witnesses from around the world. With the support of former White House chief of staff John Podesta, Kean draws on her research to separate fact from fiction and to lift the veil on decades of U.S. government misinformation. Throughout, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects - metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics - actually exist. No one yet knows what these objects are, even though they affect aviation safety and possibly national security. The phenomenon has been officially acknowledged by numerous foreign governments. For these reasons and many others, Kean concludes that the UFO problem must be more widely recognized and ultimately solved through an unbiased scientific investigation. The material presented throughout this landmark book is sobering, unflinching, and undeniably awe-inspiring, and moves us toward a goal of properly addressing this worldwide mystery.

Reports of strange objects in the sky have frightened, puzzled, and tantalized the public for hundreds of years. Most 'UFO sightings' have been debunked as hoaxes, but a troubling percentage of occurrences defy every attempt to dismiss them. The UFO Enigma examines numerous such cases from around the globe.
The authorized biography of Dr. James E. McDonald's research into the UFO phenomenon. McDonald worked in the 1950s and 1960s to raise the UFO issue in the scientific community as a serious problem. This book documents his brave fight for justice and truth, and his untimely and mysterious end. McDonald is a largely forgotten hero in the long and important battle to uncover the truth of the alien presence on Earth. With this landmark work, Ann Druffel places McDonald clearly where he belongs among the great pioneers of UFOlogy.
The Case against UFO's has not been closed. The United States Air Force has terminated Project Blue Book and closed its files. But the UFO thesis has not been disproved. In THE UFO EXPERIENCE, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a scientist of impeccable qualifications, takes on hiscolleagues on behalf of an issue that is conventially sacred, and raises questions that has never been answered. Dr. Hynek asks, 'Where do we go from here?' and propses a means whereby a process of scientific verification can be established. For the body of information now existing could yield answers with the same degree of probability to them that we accept in economics or sociooology as the basis of proof
The subject of this breakthrough book is controversial, but its message is simple: the study of UFOs merits the serious attention of the intellectual establishment. Advocating credibility for this much-maligned field of research, historian David Jacobs and his coauthors highlight some of the key events, issues, themes, and theories surrounding this elusive, complex, and compelling subject. Whether interplanetary tourists, interlopers from a parallel universe, or mere misfirings in the brain, UFOs and 'aliens' permeate popular culture. They've made the covers of Time, Life, and the New York Times Book Review; garnered CNN coverage; turned up on Larry King Live and other high-profile talk shows; attracted large audiences for films and television series; and swamped the Internet with thousands of websites and discussion groups. Despite this pervasive presence, few scholars have been willing to study the perplexing phenomena behind these cultural signifiers. Wary of a field that seems tainted by suspect methods and outlandish theories, many have logically stayed away. The relative lack of academic participation, however, creates a vicious circle that prevents the development of standards that would attract greater academic participation and, thus, credibility and funding for the field. Meanwhile, the phenomenon, rather than fading from public awareness, continues to grow and evolve. In response, this volume provides a kind of primer for scholars, skeptics, and others uneasy about investigating this field. Its authors examine the nature of UFO 'evidence'; discuss the methodological debates; incorporate research from science, history, mythology, and psychology; and highlight the reactions of the government and military from the Cold War to the present. It also brings together for the first time in one book three bestselling authors--Jacobs, Budd Hopkins, and Pulitzer Prize winner John Mack--widely known for their writings on the highly controversial 'alien abduction' phenomenon
