Format: Paperback
When the author spoke to me in Washington DC in April 2009 about this, the then-unpublished middle-volume of his planned three-volume history of the UFO phenomenon and its management by the "National Security State", he was pleased with the result. This second book, he felt, was a more coherent narrative than the first in presenting a clearly argued and compelling case for the existence of the worldwide cover-up and also in exploring the real nature of the "black world", what might be going on behind the scenes with deconstructing ET-derived technology and where it might all be leading. His tentative conclusions for the consequences of secrecy and for the future are as radical as they are intriguing.

Readers may be aware that Dolan originally planned to write a two-volume history of "UFOs and the National Security State." The first volume covered the years 1947-73 and has become a minor classic. However, he soon discovered that the quantity of pertinent material and documentation from 1973 onwards was too great to accommodate into a single book, so has divided the narrative into two further volumes. This is to be the middle one of the series, covering 1973-91 and concluding with the geo-political changes following the end of the Cold War with the dissolution of the USSR in 1989-91 and its impact on how the ET-UFO issue was subsequently managed.

The book follows a broadly chronological narrative from 1973 to 1991 and is on one level an excellent summary of the open history of the UFO phenomenon in this period. Dolan takes a global perspective and explores major encounters and the interactions of UFOs with the air forces and military of different nations, particularly the Soviet Union, and how effectively these events were media-managed.

This scholarly and very readable 637-page book is the second of a three-part series by Richard Dolan. It deals with the years 1973-91. The first volume covered the years 1941-73. The third volume is still in the pipeline. The author gives a detailed history of the UFO phenomenon, interweaving it with fascinating commentary on concurrent historical and political events. There's a particular focus on what Dolan believes to be a major and long-running cover-up by the US government and its agencies regarding UFO matters.

CASE MATERIAL

The book cites a mass of case material from around the world. Given the encyclopaedic nature of his endeavour, the author has drawn on numerous sources. No doubt some of them are more reliable than others. Correctly, in my view, Dolan regards the UFO phenomenon as being very real, and one that often has a physical aspect (i.e. it's certainly not just a matter of misperception, misreporting, hoaxing, or imagination).

Dolan appears to believe that many UFOs are exotic craft, operated or controlled by aliens. Arguably, though, some of the cases mentioned in the book don't fit well with that interpretation. Take, for example, an incident that reportedly occurred in the Canary Islands on the night of 22nd June 1976 (pp. 121-4). There were various witnesses, including a Dr Francisco Julio Padron and his driver, Francisco Estevez. Padron and Estevez were heading to Galdar, on the north-west coast of Grand Canary Island, when they saw a large spherical object hovering just above the ground, some 60 yards off the road. Estevez brought the car to a sharp halt. According to Padron, the object was perfectly round and about the size of a three-storey building.

Following on from the sensational volume I, volume it II is as good as. if not better than the first, once again, i can not recommend it highly enough.

I look forward to a planned third volume and Dolan's upcoming "After Disclosure"

Another excellent book by someone who has very quickly become a master in the field

Whether you don't believe the official media reports or your mind wonders what if we are not alone, it is a great book to get you started on facts that Richard Dolan collected. It will probably change the way you think.

This particular book is simply the best book to understand the UFO phenomena broadly, it is well written, the author gives you a chronological assessment of the ufo sights plus the evolution of the ufology itself, what is fundamental to understand our perception of the phenomena. The book is huge but it is absolutely necessary, every single case has its importance to understand the whole picture. Main cases, authors and groups of research, main conspiracies, disinformation, you get an out take of it all.

Still reading but this book is definitely a awsome read. Clear writing and creating a firm perspective in which the UFO sightings are neglected. If they exist or not is not the most important but the fact that there is no open investigation on the issues at hand. How to decide there is no problem, without a good investigation?
