8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Lynne Grey on 10 Feb 2008
Format: Paperback
It is quite obvious that the research that went into this book was phenomenal. And this book not only uncovers the cover-up of the UFO scene, but uncovers the CIA, FBI, DIA, NSA, etc. clandestine operations such as Operation Often, Operation Paperclip, MKULTRA. A few among the many cover-ups that have been revealed.

Mr. Dolan has found records of UFO sightings and contacts from all over the world; from citizens to government official to military personnel and officers.

There is no doubt that something is happening and it has and is being covered-up for whatever reason. Mr. Dolan lays the facts all out there for all to see.

This is a truly amazing book! One that is a must read for those who want to know the real deal!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Jun 2010
Format: Paperback
Richard Dolan's interest in the UFO issue was, by his own admission, originally stimulated by reading UK researcher Timothy Good's groundbreaking best-seller "Above Top Secret." With almost no initial knowledge of the subject Dolan, a trained historian, committed to a project to discover whether the UFOs persistently intruding into our skies might be of non-human manufacture and if this was known and deliberately concealed by government and military agencies; or if under analysis some other prosaic explanation might be found for this most persistent phenomenon.

After years of painstaking research, interviews with key witnesses and extensive analysis of FOIA-released documents, Dolan discovered that the enormous "National Security" apparatus operating in the USA either under or outside the control of elected government representatives indeed has been withholding information about the issue, deceiving the people and elected government officials for decades. This is the starting point of the author's thesis, which he then develops in an interesting and thought-provoking direction.

This first volume in his evolving trilogy of how the "National Security State" in the USA has managed and controlled public access to information about the UFO issue focuses on the period 1947-1973. The facts are presented in clear detail in Dolan's engaging, literate and lively writing style. Analysis of sightings, examination of evidence for the possible recovery of ET technology (from Roswell and elsewhere) and military encounters with "unknown" objects during this period are documented in an even-handed way.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dolan is a qualified historian who ran across the UFO problem after seeing a copy of Timothy Good's book ""Above Top Sectret". He was so amazed by what he read that he decided to dig in and find out if it was really true. Finding that it had a properly docmented basis he decided to write a history of the phenomenon and it's associated coverup using the normal techniques of historians, and this book is the result.

This book does two things extremely well. First it establishes beyond doubt the reality of the UFO phenomenon, and second it establishes the reality of the coverup of the UFO phenomenon. There have been many books that have attempted to do this and with varying degrees of success, but what puts this book ahead of nearly every UFO book I have read (that concentrates on these two issues) is that it is based entirely on documented evidence, furthermore the documents on which it is relies *are not in dispute*. This standard of documetary evidence has been possible largely as a result of the Freedom of Information Act as it was before it was gutted in 1985.

The FOIA was an occurence completely unforseen by the people involved in the coverup and it has been their undoing. After the Act all it took was someone to get the papers, sit down among them, separate the important from the trivial, date order it, write it up and allow the facts to take them to the obvious conclusions. And that is what Dolan has done. It is as simple as that. Along the way he also made it readable. So, if you want an excellent introduction to the topic I belive there is none better out there.

But I give you a warning.

Format: Paperback
Richard Dolan has written one of the most important books on the UFO coverup ever, using his skill as a historian he has documented very clearly that the government/military /corporate establishment are very aware of nonhuman craft and are involved in possibly one of the biggest coverup's of all time. Using credible eyewitness accounts, public records and inside information he has put a comprehensible book that is a must read for anyone interested in finding out the truth about UFO's whether laymen or serious researcher.

Format: Paperback
If you are interested in reading about UFO's and want documented facts, not speculation, this is the book for you. In a field of study where there are a lot of charlatans and plain crazies, this book shines for its solid research and intelligent analysis. Dolan has put together the big picture, and what he's found is more than fascinating. Very worthwhile read.
