Book Description

29 Jun 1995
"Uncover the greatest story "never told, with the help of world-renowned UFO researcher and writer Jenny Randles."-- "American Bookseller. "Prolific investigator Jenny Randles traces documented claims for alleged UFO crashes and retrievals going as far back as 1871...interesting reading for the insights they give into UFOlogy's evolution over the last half-century...analyzes 30 cases from around the globe, concluding that some are obvious hoaxes, that others can be explained away after objective assessment of the evidence, but that a few of them at least support claims made by the UFOlogy contingent."-- "Nexus. 200 pages, 15 b/w illus., 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.

Format:Paperback
Jenny Randles is a thoughtful and sceptical researcher who writes in
a lucid and readable style. In a field fraught with absolute
rubbish, nonesense, and out-and-out fabrications, Ms. Randles
is a breath of fresh air. Her writing is well-researched and
factual, but is open-minded. In short, she writes in a
scientific style that is an excellent read.

This book is a series of case-histories of 32 so-called
alien spacecraft retrievals. As Ms. Randles clearly points
out, many of them were hoaxes, or are almost certainly so. The
residual ones, especially the Roswell and Rendlesham Forest
cases, which are now famous, provide an intriguing and
compelling web of corroborated accounts that are difficult to
dismiss, as both governments involved have repeatedly tried
to do. In the latter case, dogged persistence by Ms. Randles
and her colleagues in England, as well as collaborative
Freedom of INformation Act inquiries in the US, have unearthed
a fascinating and even startling series of events that point
to, near unequivocably, the occurrence of some very non-
normal, extraordinary happenings just outside a secret
USAF base in England during the early 1980s. Everything
that the author presents is clearly documented from a
variety of sources, and many are from official and unofficial
government sources.

As a working scientist, I would without question recommend
this book to both scientific colleages as well as the lay
audience. It will surprise and unsettle those readers who
have been willing to write off UFO sightings as mere
products of active imaginations. There is something real
going on here, and Jenny Randles covers a very difficult
subject with aplomb and a critical, but open, mind-set.
