5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 21 Aug. 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Missing Time is arguably the most important book on alien abductions ever written. While other accounts such as The Interrupted Journey (detailing the 1961 abduction of Betty and Barney Hill) and Raymond Fowler's The Andreasson Affair had previously been published, this book, published in 1981, was the first to look for patterns and consistencies across a spectrum of different abductee reports. While Missing Time now seems almost quaint and reserved in its observations and conclusions, it was incredibly bold for its time. Budd Hopkins is truly one of the preeminent men in the field of UFOlogy today, and his earnest attempts at objectivity and scientific problem solving have long provided a blueprint for serious investigators working to discover the truth about the almost unbelievable phenomenon of alien abduction. As one might naturally wonder how a very successful artist came to be an authority on a subject of this sort, Hopkins begins by giving you the background of his life and the sequence of events which led to his becoming a leading researcher in the field of alien abduction. Having established his own credentials of a sort, he then proceeds to describe seven abduction stories that he has investigated, augmenting the narrative with small bits of information from cases still under study at the time of writing. Comparing and contrasting these individual accounts, Hopkins draws several reasonable conclusions and then wraps the book up with his own theories and ideas about the truth of this serious matter.
There are several fascinating accounts presented in these pages, with most of the imparted information originating in hypnotic regression sessions.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This was one of the earliest works published in modern times investigating the bizarre and outlandish subject of alien abductions. The 1957 Villas Boas case had been publicised, and Fuller's `The Interrupted Journey' on the Hill case published as early as 1966. The MA MUFON team had investigated the 1967 Betty Andreasson case and the 1975 case of the Allagash Four, and these case studies were subsequently written up and published by Raymond Fowler. There were books on the Hickson-Parker abduction in Mississippi (the Pascagoula case) and the abduction work of Leo Sprinkle and Ann Druffel had also been published.

`Missing Time' however, published in 1982, was groundbreaking in that Hopkins revealed the persistent and repeat-nature of this phenomenon (first seen in the Andreasson case, but the significance was missed by Fowler and the other investigators) and its seeming prevalence in certain family lines, the result of rigorous application of scientific methodology to this terrifying and extraordinary phenomenon.

The seven cases investigated in MT seem rather 'tame' when laid alongside later revelations uncovered by other investigators, but the reader needs to constantly remind him/herself how revolutionary this material was in 1982, and how it revealed the scale of a `hidden epidemic.' Hopkins was not the first to grapple with the subject, but was the first to uncover the repeat and intergenerational nature of this phenomenon and to document the persistence of scoop-mark and straight-line scarring on abductees, many photographs of which are printed in the book. The recovery of suppressed memories in all seven cases was undertaken by qualified psychiatrists utilising hypnosis, and not by Hopkins himself, who took no part in the proceedings. These practicing psychiatrists like Dr.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of then 11 books about UFO's I have read to date this is by far the best. It is convincing, exceptionally well written and exceptional in both subject matter and the way the information is presented. The contents are explosive in their effect, all the more so if the stories are true, as they appear to be. It is a must for anyone vaguely interested in the UFO phenomenon, (and infact anyone that isn't)
