UFOs and the National Security State:

Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973


by Richard M. Dolan

Richard M. Dolan is a gifted historian whose study of U.S. Cold War strategy led him to the broader context of increased security measures and secrecy since World War II. One aspect of such government policies that has continued to hold the public's imagination for over half a century is the question of unidentified flying objects.

UFOs and the National Security State is the first volume of a two-part detailed chronological narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Working from hundreds of declassified records and other primary and secondary sources, Dolan centers his investigation on the American military and intelligence communities, demonstrating that they take UFOs seriously indeed.

Included in this volume are the activities of more than fifty military bases relating to UFOs, innumerable violations of sensitive airspace by unknown craft and analyses of the Roswell controversy, the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel, and the Condon Committee Report. Dolan highlights the development of civilian anti-secrecy movements, which flourished in the 1950s and 1960s until the adoption of an official government policy and subsequent "closing of the door" during the Nixon administration.


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.

  A superb job! To say, "I was astounded" would be an understatement.

  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.

  The best history of the UFO phenomenon in one volume that I have ever read.

    -- 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.
