Hi, Roy, A really excellent book, which everybody seeking an informed perspective on the subject ought to have in his or her library, is Michael Swords and Robert Powell's UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry, which Anomalist Books published last year. (My review will appear soon in Fortean Times.) It has an additional list of international contributors whose names Listfolk will recognize: Ballester Olmos, Chalker, Svahn, and the grounded like. Resisting all but the most reasonable, evidence-backed speculation (in short: no conspiracy theories), it details the official history of the phenomenon as it can be gleaned from voluminous documents and interviews. Not always an edifying story, certainly, and even maddening at times, but UFO&G is essential reading, up there with Ruppelt, Jacobs's first book, and Greenwood & Fawcett as a reliable, illuminating -- and, unlike the just-mentioned, fully up-to-date -- guide to its subject. The lesson one takes from the book's nearly 600 pages is that UFO reports are better suited to scientific analysts than to ministries of defense. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
