Some say they have been abducted and subjected to terrifying physical examinations. Others claim that young children have been kidnapped and returned only after the removal of flesh samples. Still others allege that women have been kidnapped and impregnated, the unborn children later removed for a vast cross-breeding experiment.
These crimes against humanity are not perpetuated by an international terrorist organization. The "abductees" assert that they have been kidnapped by extraterrestrial beings. UFO abduction claims have spawned a veritable cottage industry, providing the fodder for an explosion of magazine articles, television interviews, newspaper features, bestselling books, and movies. Somewhere beyond all the tumult lies the truth.
Dedicated to "those who will needlessly bear mental scars because of the foolish fantasies of a few," UFO Abductions lifts the shroud of mystery from the invisible epidemic of UFO abduction claims. Philip J. Klass, an internationally recognized skeptical authority on the subject of UFO reports, traces the history of these claims, from the celebrated Betty and Barney Hill case in 1966 to the extraordinary tales which are surfacing today.
