Product Description

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.

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!

Richard Dolan's, "UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973" certainly gives us a glimpse of the effort that the "powers that be" undertake to keep the truth form the general public. Through Dolan's extensive research their tactics become evident. One can only imagine what has taken place over the last thirty years. Are we seeing the results manifest in today's world? Looking forward to Volume II.

Format: Paperback
I have obtained and read a famed historian Richard Dolan's book a few months ago, and it was very insightful book with a strong historical perspective on the United States government's dealings with the issue of UFOs from the Roswell era to 1973. While studying in U.S. Cold War strategy, Dolan's research led him to 'see' the increased secrecy of UFOs done by the American government. I thought this book is the great historical documentation on UFOs and the infamous 'cover-up.'

Dolan is currently working on sending out his second volume: from mid-1970s to present. Few weeks ago, I have listened to a recent interview between Richard Dolan and SOTT team, which was on a podcast at sott.net.

Format: Paperback
A big thank you to Richard Dolan for using his skills as a historian to meticulously go though all the officials records, mainly released through the Freedom of Information act, to make a timeline of UFO sightings, and government investigations/coverup into the phenomena. It is obvious from the records, as shown in the book, that something was going on that was very disconcerting to the power elite and that they did everything in their power to keep it top secret. Apart from making a timeline of UFO related events, Dolan shows how the power elite with the use of Counterintelligence programs known as COINTELPRO, were debunking,denying and ridiculing the UFO phenomenon, so that no serious scientist with concern for their career would dare talk about or investigate the subject.

The book goes only to the year 1973, but a new book following on should apparently be coming out soon, which should be interesting to get hold of. A few days ago, I stumbled on this recent podcast with Dolan on the alternative news site "Signs of the Times", while surfing the net. Worth a listen as he talks about his findings and his upcoming sequel to the first book, bringing the chronology up to the present.

Thanks for the great book Rich! I teach a UFO class and use this book as the text. There's more information here than you can possibly handle! I can't wait for part II to come out!

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.
