Ce livre n'est pas du point de vue qu'on pourrait voir dans d'autres écrits sur le sujet et prend un bias plus "doux" que ces derniers.
Les faits donnés sont pour l'écrasante majorité vérifiables et vérifiés par des documents. C'est vraiment intéressant de voir ce point de vue de l'intérieur des gouvernements quand à ce qui est de l'inconnu.

Exceptional Analytical Work 12 septembre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry" is an exceptional and exciting book. Written by UFO History Group - serious researchers and historians composed of Swords, Powell, Svahn, Olmos, Chalker, Greenwood, Thieme, Aldrich and Purcell - it brings analytical complexity of the UFO phenomena from the World War II up to current days. Their work stands on the shoulder of facts, official documents, and sterling sources. Book is focused towards military and intelligence circles and describes in detail their long-term struggle how to handle the unwanted problem of UFOs. If only phenomena could simply go away and leave them in piece. But it persists, without mercy, over and over again. Historical treatment of the official UFO research within United States is presented with great care and controversies that followed projects Sign, Grudge and Blue Book. Years passed. Different officials within different policies tried to deal with the issue, one way or another.

It was especially interesting to compare official policies with internal notes of Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, former head of project Blue Book that wrote a classic book "The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects." "UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry" brought extended treatment to General Cabell's 1951 meeting, which was mentioned only in passing in Ruppelt's book. Notes from the meeting show that Cabell demanded serious approach regarding UFOs. Ruppelt previously described in his original book that "every word of the two-hour meeting was recorded on a wire recorder. Recording was so hot that it was later destroyed."

It was impressive to follow chapter of the Colorado Project which caused closure of the USAF investigations of the phenomena. Audiotaped lecture from CUFOS archives of Robert Low to the JPL at Caltech from October 1967 shows how strong the subject was polarized between personal opinions and official inertia. This chapter is a great companion piece to previous works of Dr. J. Allen Hynek's "The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry," David. R. Saunders' "UFOs? Yes!: Where the Condon committee went wrong," and Wendy Connors' audio set "Faded Discs." Documents and facts from Sweden, Australia, Spain, France, Belgium, former Soviet Union and Brazil, emphasized the international context of the whole problem.

In Australian chapter, Sea Fury radar-visual incident with UFO from August 31, 1954 was presented. Pilot was instructed by air-traffic control to turn his airplane for identification. That maneuver showed that his aircraft was discernable from two other close targets. Similar radar-visual case, that I am personally aware of, happened at the end of 1970s in former Yugoslavia where a pilot was also instructed to turn his aircraft for identification purposes. At that moment, UFO accelerated towards the aircraft almost causing a collision. Case involved AIRPROX implication to aviation safety so it was interesting for me to compare similarities between both cases.

Book also explains unique situation in France because their official UFO research program, from GEPAN, SEPRA to GEIPAN, is located within French Space Agency CNES where a scientific approach is applied. Although, official UFO program in United States is terminated after the review of Condon's committee, other programs in other countries are still active. It can be argued that due to the lack of the direct experience in the UFO field, countries that are still in the UFO business, will encounter same obstacles and in the end, they will draw same conclusions like Project Blue Book did. On the other hand, France is already 35 years in the UFO field, which is 13 years more than the length of the whole Blue Book's mandate. Official projects and investigations of these complex aerial phenomena are ongoing, and that is the fact.

This book can serve as a perfect briefing document for every government employee, military analyst, non-commissioned officer, officer and researcher which could be, or already is, confronted with this issue. France has GEIPAN; Chile has CEFAA; Uruguay has CRIDOVNI; Argentine has CEFA, etc. If any employee of those projects, or any other serious scholar from any other field, will need a historical broad overview of the UFO phenomena, this book will provide a great service. If this issue will ever become academically recognized in unpredictable future, "UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry" should be an obligatory literature at those colleges. My opinion is that this is the best book about UFO phenomena ever written.

A Scholarly Review 4 septembre 2012
Par Don Berliner, aerospace writer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is easily one of the top five books about the highly controversial subject of UFOs. Written by a team of scholars, it describes the convoluted story of the the U.S. Government's involvement with unexplained and often unexplainable observations of what appear to have been solid, structured objects having off-the-scale performance. Moreover, it attempts to explain the behavior of government officials caught between the needs of so-called national security and the individual's right to know what is going on. The authors do not hesitate to admit to having insufficient information to deal properly with what appears to most people to be an obvious conclusion. They have not set out to answer the big questions (what are they? where do they come from? what are they doing here?) but state only what they can support with facts. This is truly a breath of fresh air.

An essential read 6 septembre 2012
Par Billy Cox - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Don't be intimidated by UFOs and Government's formidable length. This is a justifiably indignant narrative about the contemporary equivalent of Galileo's 17th-century heresy conviction for daring to present the evidence for heliocentric reality. The history of America's hapless response to the great intellectual challenge of our time should offend everyone who subscribes to science as the arbiter for settling competing opinions. In an ideal world, UFOs and Government would provide the foundation for an honest debate on the real and ongoing drama unfolding in our atmosphere. But we will not get there unless and until scholars and historians confront the hard truths about our past. The road ahead starts here.

HEAD OF THE CLASS !!! 21 mars 2014
Par Robert Steven Thomas - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is clearly the finest account I have ever come across among many-many books I have read on the subject of UFO's. Just like the TV series X-File's Agent Mulder ... "I want to believe." Problem is there is so little direct evidence (government censoring not withstanding) to go on. This book takes a calm, rational, sober, scholarly approach to analyzing some of the best government reports on record. The evidence is overwhelming. If you have ever had any doubts about the reality of UFO's, this is the book for you to read which will very likely change your thinking through logic and conclusively established direct accounts.

Refreshing work of History 7 août 2012
Par Martin D. Kimzey - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"UFOs and Government" is a refreshing departure from the speculative books that one usually sees on this topic. This book is a meticulously researched work of history that shows the very real and all-too human response of governments to the problem of UFOs. As with most works of history, the actual story is far more compelling than any fictional account. "UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry" covers the treatment of UFOs by european countries, Australia and The United States.
