Trade paperback of excellent quality binding, cover, paper; typeface is clear and easily to read, typos rare.
Contents deserve the highest recommendation for breadth of research, concision of writing style, clarity of thought and expression of ideas. Special tribute to Mr. Dolan for his many references and credit to two of the finest Americans who have yet to delve into this mystery: Major Donald Keyhoe and Dr. James E. McDonald.
Mr. Dolan's perspective on how a better understanding of UFOs has been obfuscated and frustrated by agencies within our government, as well as much of our national media, conjoined of course, is presented efficiently and without distortion or cant. His summary of 25 years' worth of global UFO sightings alone makes this a valuable reference book. Combined with other developments related to the elaboration of our national security apparatus - domestic and international - this study achieves truly authoritative status. This is a book that every student of American history should read, regardless of their opinion about UFOs.
If you have any real interest in this subject this book should be on your list. Deserves a place alongside the too long out of print UFO Controversy In America by Prof. David M. Jacobs.
Cannot wait for volume #2!
If you are already well read on the subject of UFOs, you should read this book.
If you are skeptical about UFOs you must read this book.
If you believe in wild government conspiracy theories you will want to read this book.
If you think the government only has our best interests at heart, then you really need to read this book.
Not only is this possibly the best book ever written on UFOs, it is such an important book on UFOs and the military industrial complex, that every thinking person should read it as soon as possible. If you are reading the Bible, put it down, and start reading "UFOS and the National Security State".
Mr. Dolan has clearly documented a pattern of covert efforts by U.S. intelligence agencies to conceal the great worldwide wave of modern UFO incidents beginning during World War II. This is an extremely well researched and well crafted work. It fully qualifies as non-fiction in every sense, being based largely on the most solid portion of the body of evidence for UFOs.
A book this important does not come along very often. I sincerely wish that many more people would read this book so the citizens of earth would begin to understand the widening gap between official truth and conventional wisdom on one hand, and the real truth on the other hand.
Please, read this book, for your own sake and for the sake of all your fellow earthlngs.

Basically what Richard does is through careful documentation demonstrate that the Government was very interested in UFO's for and extended period, even while maintaining an official position of denial. This does not prove the existence of UFO's, but it does demonstrate a real interest in an otherwise unexplainable phenomenon. To use Richards Analogy, as the book rolls along the Elephant in the living room looms larger and larger. What Richard did for me at least, was allow the US Government to convince me of the reality of the visitors.
I sincerely doubt the Government keeps 1000's of pages of top secret documents on Big Foot. Any thoughtful citizen should put aside the lables believer and skeptic and consider Richards book. We need to ask ourselves, why is my government so interested in this subject, if its all fluff and bunnies?? Why do such a high percentage of sightings occur near facilities storing nuclear material. And what's more frightening, the thought that visitors are real, or that so many persons who man these facilities have apparently become temporarily unhinged if they are seeing fluff and bunnies.
Just a thought. A co-worker of mine saw this book and borrowed it. When I asked why later he told me. "I used to be a Radar Operator, one night we tracked a blip. It just hung in space for 3 passes. Then shot off screen as fast as any Jet.Read more ›
