Overview

This is the 2nd volume in Richard Dolan's series, "UFOs and the National Security State," which covers all aspects of the UFO phenomenon from the 1940s to the present day. Volume 2, "The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991," analyzes the UFO sightings, politics, and research that occurred during the last two decades of the cold war.

Working from archival sources, professional journals, and his own investigations, Dolan describes UFO encounters worldwide, demonstrating that the phenomenon is global, and the result of advanced technology.

Many cases involved sensitive military airspace. These include intrusions over American and Canadian air bases; attempts to intercept a UFO over Tehran; the landing of an unknown object near two airbases in Britain; large boomerang-shaped craft near New York City; unexplained triangular craft seen throughout the U.S. and Europe; strange objects in Earth orbit seen by Soviet and American astronauts; and encounters with UFOs from around the world.

Dolan also studies "UFO politics," describes the black-budget connection, and provides a geopolitical analysis to explain the whys and hows of UFO secrecy.

Finally, he provides a history of UFO research itself. He recreates the discussions and debates concerning alien abductions, animal mutilations, intelligence community infiltration into UFO research, the controversial MJ-12 documents, the Gulf Breeze controversy, reverse engineering of alien technology, crop circles, and more. Dolan also studies the effect of such new technologies as the Internet on UFO research.

This is a complete history of the phenomenon, the secrecy, and the response by researchers who sought to understand the mystery. Behind it all is the backdrop of a world in technological, economic, and political transformation.

"UFOs and the National Security State: The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991," takes the reader through a turning point in the history of the UFO phenomenon, as well as the history of the modern world.

Editorial Reviews

J. R. Folliard
Masterful Chronicle. This is the second of a projected three-volume history of UFOs and their impact on our "national security state." Here, Richard Dolan improves on Volume I -- a fine piece of work itself. Dolan is fully in command of the field and its sources. I'm already looking forward to Dolan's third volume.

Meet the Author

Richard Dolan is considered by many students of the UFO phenomenon to be the pre-eminent historian of the subject.

He is the author of two volumes of history, UFOs and the National Security State, as well as an analysis of the future, A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact.

Richard’s writing is widely seen as ufology’s gold standard. His seminal history, UFOs and the National Security State, has inspired such statements as “the best history ever written about UFOs” by best-selling author Whitley Strieber, and “masterful and important” by Dr. Edgar Mitchell of Apollo 14.

A.D. After Disclosure, which Richard co-authored with Bryce Zabel (creator of the television series Dark Skies), has been widely hailed as among the most original works in all of UFO literature, a fearless and analytical “what if” scenario that discusses the deep impact that would be brought about by the end of UFO secrecy.

Among Richard’s main themes are the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO cover-up, the possible nature of the non-humans themselves, and what their presence here means for our civilization. This has led him to take a fresh approach to the topic of “Exopolitics” and to develop unique insights into the practical challenges and opportunities for a true disclosure of the UFO phenomenon.

Richard has also written numerous articles, spoken at conferences around the world, is a frequent guest on radio shows such as Coast-to-Coast AM, and has done a great deal of television work. In 2006 he hosted a six-episode series called SciFi Investigate. More recently, he appeared with NBC’s Lester Holt for a special two-hour documentary, “Inside Secret Government Warehouses: Shocking Revelations.”

Richard was born in Brooklyn, New York, studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship, and completed his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester. Prior to his interest in UFOs, he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.

    Very comprehensive book on the history of flying saucers. Dolan

    Very comprehensive book on the history of flying saucers. Dolan puts the events together with the historical times of the day. While he does jump to conclusions a lot, he does it with lot's of documentation. I doubt you can find a better book on UFO's that really puts the whole history into perspective.

    Every Conspiracy Covered

    If his first book was out there a bit, this one is interstellar. Every major conspiracy of the 20th century makes an appearance here, and are tied into UFO lore.
    I did find the history of the UFO reporting groups interesting.

    Again, very entertaining and a good read, but I doubt the connections made.
