This book is a comprehensive source for individuals who think that sufficient evidence merits acceptance of the premise that intelligent extraterrestrials are already interacting with humanity and who are already asking what an appropriate, democratic, political response might be (even if an unsupervised shadow government maintains negotiations, exchanges and de facto agreements not only detached from common democratic processes but with the extraterrestrial groups it finds more appropriate. Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET is a seminal book written to offer a leading edge analysis of the nature of different extraterrestrial groups so that mindful citizens willing to represent their vital interests and even those of humanity, the Earth and even of all planetary sentient beings acquire basic, general information to intelligently proceed with a peaceful, track two, complementary, citizen s Galactic Diplomacy. ... Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET showed me that it was possible to treat the complex and startling exopolitical situation with fairness, academic distinction and a form of reasonableness that includes an objective analysis and qualitative assessment suitable to a useful, normal and moral human standpoint. It succeeds in presenting a necessarily challenging overview of various unique categories that must be inclusively studied to practice exopolitics and to responsibly launch a new stage in real-world human-ET interacting with a vital and extraordinary political situation. --Giorgio Piacenza Cabrera

I am a great admirer Dr. Salla's work and Dr. Salla as a person- he is one of those tireless individuals that are paving the way, doing the groundwork so to say, maing it is easier for the rest of us to follow through smoothly into the new age with as much knowledge and comfort as possible.
My only negative comment about the book was the repetition of some of the facts over and over again. I thought I lost my place in the book - more than once thinking I had already read an area since it was so close to something I read a few pages before. It was well worth reading through those areas and continuing to reach the pearls of wisdom he is sharing with us. I highly recommend this book if you would like to get a clearer picture of our place in the Cosmos.
I am taking this quote directly from D. Salla's Book:
"We are poised to become a galactic civilization, and that means discerning our true friends as those respecting and supporting our vital interests as individuals, nations and an emerging planetary civilization."
