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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

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.

A Masterpiece. It is perfectly organized and prioritized. The commentary is direct, factual, concise and understandable. What emerges in no uncertain terms is that some kind of particular group within the US Government decided to withhold information about the reality of advanced intelligences interfacing with our world. No rational person can come to any other conclusion. Truly superb.

This is not your typical UFO book. It does not contain tons of testimony and detailed descriptions of sightings, encounters, and abductions. What it does do, and does very well, is present the position, responses and actions of the US and other governments to the UFO phenomenon by making ample use of the Freedom of Information Act as well as published and first-hand accounts through the years. It opens with the government response to WWII UFO reports and goes forward from there. Don't plan on sitting down and reading this tome in an evening. It is an 8" x 11" paperback of just over 575 pages (including references and Index).

Everyone should read this book. It is incredibly well documented and has convinced me--a confirmed skeptic. Excellent book and very readable.
