4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Joseph T. Reinckens II on October 13, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I give this book three stars because it is EXACTLY what it's title says: "UFO's and Related Subjects: An ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY". It is just page after page of Author name, book or article title, publisher, publication date and in most cases no more than 3 lines describing the work.

Examples: p. 33:

Priestly, Lee. Inside APRO ... a saucer fan club. Fate, v. 12, Jan. 1959: 59-65.

Account of the activities of the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) of Tucson, Arizona.

Prytz, John. The Air Force opinion on UFOs. Flying Saucers, Oct. 1966: 26-27.

Author states that although officially USAF disclaims the reality of flying saucers, a high percentage of USAF personnel believe in the seriousness of phenomenon.

Catoe was a Library of Congress librarian who compiled this for the Condon Committee. It includes about 1,600 articles and books, including many privately published and obtained from private collections. Her report to the Committee included the full text of all documents on microfilm. But obviously that is NOT part of the Bibliography.

(By the way, if anyone is thinking of filing a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to have the government provide a copy of the materials that accompanied the bibliography, Condon ordered the materials destroyed sometime after the final report was issued.)

Standing alone, the book has little use. Either you can get the materials by searching on-line catalogs for "paranormal", "UFO", etc., or you can't. Tens of thousands of books and articles have been written on these topics, so just a bibliographical listing with almost no description that ends in the late 60's isn't useful--certainly not worth anywhere near $60.
