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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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
