Overview

This is the new must-have UFO book. For beginners and experienced researchers alike, historian Richard Dolan covers the full range of this incredibly complex topic in his uniquely engaging style.

He offers fresh insights on everything connected to UFOs: ancient aliens, modern encounters, abductions, channelers, the politics and cover-up, the black budget world, the bizarre science, the social dimensions (read YouTube and Facebook), the future, and much more.

Toward that end, Dolan gives practical insights on how to distinguish and investigate UFOs in today's world, where we are flooded with claims and videos and data of all types.

In addition, as one of ufology's pioneers in the deep analysis of the cover-up, he offers an original perspective on how it all works and why the cover-up, despite being so entrenched and insidious, is nevertheless bound to end. He also writes on the nature of contact, speculating on who these "Others" might be. Finally, Dolan takes the reader through the "weird science" of UFOs, covering everything from propulsion to spacetime to consciousness and more.

UFOs for the 21st Century Mind is a roadmap pointing the way forward in a field filled with uncertainty and obfuscation. In so doing, it is set to reposition an ancient phenomenon into a contemporary state of mind, reminding you just why the greatest mystery of our time is also one of the most important.

Endorsements:

"In a field that can be so confusing, so complex, Richard Dolan has taken his many years of thinking about UFOs and written a completely fresh overview of the entire subject. . . . This is an ambitious work that truly ties the many different aspects of the subject together. It's rare to find something like this, especially considering the care and thoroughness that went into it."
-- George Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM.

"As a follow-up to his previous books exploring the relationship between UFOs and the National Security State, historian Richard Dolan widens his perspective to explore all aspects of this provocative phenomenon. In this role, he takes us on a journey that brings to life the subtlety and depth of this rich subject, a truly captivating read."
--H. E. Puthoff, Ph.D., Director, Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin

"UFOs For the 21st Century Mind represents a new kind of book - one that clearly and intelligently addresses literally every aspect and implication of the most maligned, misunderstood and compelling subject in human history. Richard Dolan's newest work is perfect reading for serious students of ufology as well as the absolute beginner. Inspired, particularly well written, and the product of a first class mind for this or any other century."
--Peter Robbins, coauthor of the U.K. bestseller, Left At East Gate: A First-Hand Account of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, Its Cover-up and Investigation

"This is an invaluable treatment of the known facets and seemingly endless implications regarding UFOs, with a much-appreciated focus on the human experience. A job well done, Richard."
-- Sam Maranto, Investigative Researcher

Meet the Author

Richard Dolan has researched UFOs and related phenomena since the early 1990s. He is the author of the historical series, UFOs and the National Security State (volumes one and two), as well as an analysis of the future, A.D. After Disclosure: When the Government Finally Reveals the Truth About Alien Contact.

He has appeared widely on radio and television, including Coast-to-Coast AM, CNN, The History Channel, SyFy, BBC, and elsewhere. Since 2012, Richard has hosted "The Richard Dolan Show," airing on KGRA Radio.

In his writings and interviews, Richard has analyzed the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO cover-up, the possible nature of the non-humans themselves, what their presence means for our civilization, why he believes the cover-up will end within our lifetime, and what is likely to happen after that.

With the completion of UFOs for the 21st Century Mind, Richard plans to complete the third volume of UFOs and the National Security State, which will take the history of the UFO reality and cover-up to the present day.

In earlier years, Richard had been a Rhodes Scholar finalist, earned a Bachelor's and Master's degree in History, and received a Certificate in Political Theory at Oxford University. Born in Brooklyn, raised on Long Island, he continues to live in Rochester, New York, where he spent many years raising his family.
