About The Book
Bracing finale to Vallee’s “Alien Contact trilogy” (Dimensions, ’88; Confrontations, ’90), as the ufologist brings some famous UFO cases down to earth — & into the mud. In Dimensions, he presented his theory that UFOs are probably not spacecraft but manifestations of a consciousness-controlling technology from “dimensions beyond spacetime”; in Confrontations, he bolstered that theory with examples from his own casebook. Here, deftly blending theory & memoir, he attempts to clear ufololgy of “the weeds & the vines of human fantasy &…the poisonous flowers of unbalanced minds.” That is, to him, cases from the infamous Roswell incident (spacecraft & aliens purportedly captured by the USAAF in ’47) to the popular legend of Area 51 (aliens working tentacle-in-hand with US officials beneath the Nevada desert) to the alleged abduction of Franck Fontaine in ’79 (exhaustively researched 1sthand by Vallee) to the purported top-secret federal UFO-investigating committee of Howard Blum’s Out There (’90) aren’t only mostly nonsense, but — here’s the rub — “complex hoaxes that have been carefully engineered for our benefit.” But by whom, & why? By federal disinformation agents, & possibly as “psychological warfare experiments” or “as a cover for something else” — i.e., experimental spy/warcraft or real “flying discs.” He offers little hard evidence to back those conjectures, but he does unglove the heavy hand of military intelligence in many cases, while at the same time exposing the absurdity of others, including Budd Hopkins’ best-selling alien-rape reports. So what’s left? A host of genuinely mysterious cases, e.g., the ’89 USSR sightings, & the spirit of rigorous scientific inquiry that he urges they be subjected to. Except for his wobbly conclusions, a forceful & refreshingly iconoclastic study that, for all its good sense, will likely add up to only a cry in the alien-infested ufowilderness. — Kirkus (edited)
