A fine example is the way this author has handled the MJ-12 Controversy and related matters. From personal knowledge I can say that Dolan has done an excellect job of presenting these events and personalities in a well summarized form. He accepts the possibility of a very active Counter-Intellignce role in the UFO cover-up while examining this issue. And he presents all of this without jumping to conclusions!
More important, Dolan is also willing to ask many questions when he does not have the answers. He will leave the individual subjects open ended so the reader or researcher can look into matters further for themselves (Plenty of References to help with that). Such a perspective is rare enough when so many in the field of Ufology think they already have all the answers! If there is a UFO Cover-Up, then perhaps it is rather foolish to have a great deal of certainty about what is being covered-up and why? There may be aspects and implications to this subject we barely understand. And "The Cover-Up Exposed" is a great way to get us thinking about them.
Dolan stands out as a researcher in the truest form as he reports his findings rather than draw a conclusion daring the reader to disagree. Dolan respects the reader and the topic matter to an exceptional degree. His ease of prose is also noteworthy.
I had first heard of Mr. Dolan on Coast to Coast AM and was impressed with Mr. Dolan's candor and ability to convey research. His writings match his eloquent speaking ability.
I highly endorse Mr. Dolan and applaud his work.
Readers may be aware that Dolan originally planned to write a two-volume history of "UFOs and the National Security State." The first volume covered the years 1947-73 and has become a minor classic. However, he soon discovered that the quantity of pertinent material and documentation from 1973 onwards was too great to accommodate into a single book, so has divided the narrative into two further volumes. This is to be the middle one of the series, covering 1973-91 and concluding with the geo-political changes following the end of the Cold War with the dissolution of the USSR in 1989-91 and its impact on how the ET-UFO issue was subsequently managed.
The book follows a broadly chronological narrative from 1973 to 1991 and is on one level an excellent summary of the open history of the UFO phenomenon in this period. Dolan takes a global perspective and explores major encounters and the interactions of UFOs with the air forces and military of different nations, particularly the Soviet Union, and how effectively these events were media-managed.Read more ›
