Book Description

June 1 2002

Richard M. Dolan is a gifted historian whose study of U.S. Cold War strategy led him to the broader context of increased security measures and secrecy since World War II. One aspect of such government policies that has continued to hold the public's imagination for over half a century is the question of unidentified flying objects.

UFOs and the National Security State is the first volume of a two-part detailed chronological narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Working from hundreds of declassified records and other primary and secondary sources, Dolan centers his investigation on the American military and intelligence communities, demonstrating that they take UFOs seriously indeed.

Included in this volume are the activities of more than fifty military bases relating to UFOs, innumerable violations of sensitive airspace by unknown craft and analyses of the Roswell controversy, the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel, and the Condon Committee Report. Dolan highlights the development of civilian anti-secrecy movements, which flourished in the 1950s and 1960s until the adoption of an official government policy and subsequent "closing of the door" during the Nixon administration.

Review

A superb job! To say I was astounded would be an understatement. -- UFO Magazine, Dec/Jan 2001

The best UFO book of the year. -- Dr. Bob Hieronimus, 21st Century Radio

The best history ever written about UFOs. Richard Dolan is the leading UFO historian in the world right now. -- Whitley Strieber, author of Communion

The best history of the UFO phenomenon in one volume that I have ever read. -- Loy Lawhon, UFO researcher and columnist

This is a thorough and monumental undertaking. I applaud your effort. -- Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut

This is an inspiration. Prior to reading the book, I would have considered myself quite skeptical. However, at certain points I couldn't stop reading, even though circumstances said I should. -- John Belluardo, New York, NY --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

This book is a unique acheivement in the field of UFO scholarship. Based on research of hundreds of official and fully documented sources, Richard Dolan has presented an astonishing level of detail, sophistication, and clarity to a topic all-too-frequently dismissed as an adjunct of pop culture. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft Evidence is IN! Aug. 18 2002
Format:Paperback
For those who purport that the UFO phenomenon is byproduct of over-active imaginations or quasi-religious fantasies, here is a book that offers enough soft evidence to show that the military and governmental authorities have, been, and are, involved in a coverup of massive proportions. Yes, there have been other "history" books written on the UFO problem, yet, Richard Dolan squarely hits the nail on the head, with this comprehensive, clearly articulated volume on the prehistory of UFOs in our skies. His refreshing ability to refrain from subjective arguments for or against propels him to the top of the list for unbiased argument. He simply reports.. And the reports are in, by the hundreds, nationally and globally. Classified documents, military and government voices and clearcut unambiguous sightings both on radar and physical traces, add to the overwhelming conclusion that something of great magnitude has been happening in the earth's skies for at least over half a century, probably more. If you enjoy an open mind, free from dogmatic restraints, then open this book, and read it with fresh eye. Then decide for yourself if "hallucinations" can cover all the bases. A superb and scholarly work!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recent books on the UFO subject Feb. 20 2004
Format:Paperback
A great effort. The historical format is ideal for those soberly concerned about the UFO phenomenon. There is some speculation within the pages but it's generally reasonably argued and kept in check by the author's objectivity. I am very much looking forward to the next volume. Highly recommended.

If you are already interested in UFOs, you should read this book.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's about friggin' time Nov. 22 2002
Format:Paperback
For years official culture has too often "missed the point" about most things even vaguely mysterious -the mafia, the secret government, religion, history- so it is not suprising that the ufo situation has been laughed off and misunderstood also: And we must remember that the seemingly illogical ufo phenomena itself along with the simple-mindedness of the public at large has aided greatly in this state of affairs...sigh...I guess we're not ready, whatever THAT means.
Ufo's and related phenomena are weighty and highly significant; like an iceberg that barely peeks its head above water. But unlike an iceberg we can accuse it of actively manipulating its presence in a quasi-intelligente fashion.
I especially enjoyed this book's excursion into artificial intelligence and the technological singularity -the point beyond which our human/ape brains can neither comprehend nor predict what our technology will "want" to do.
What do the ufonauts desire of humanity? I can't say. But whatever it is they'll certainly get it. I can only assume this book is a small part of that process...
