UFOs and the National Security State

ufo-covers-smRichard Dolan is a leading historian and author about UFOs and related phenomena.  He is author of UFOs and the National Security State (currently in 2 volumes) and co-author of A.D. After Disclosure: When the Government Finally Reveals the Truth about Alien Contact.

He also has a new book, due out in the Fall of 2012: UFOs for the 21st Century Mind: A New Primer for the Greatest Mystery of Our Time.  This is a book that has long needed to be written:  a succinct but complete overview of the UFO phenomenon and everything related to it, with a fresh perspective and a view toward the future as well as the past.

1941 - 1973

Richard M. Dolan is a gifted historian whose study of U.S. Cold War strategy led him to the broader context of increased security measures and secrecy since World War II. One aspect of such government policies that has continued to hold the public's imagination for over half a century is the question of unidentified flying objects.

UFOs and the National Security State is the first volume of a two-part detailed chronological narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Working from hundreds of declassified records and other primary and secondary sources, Dolan centers his investigation on the American military and intelligence communities, demonstrating that they take UFOs seriously indeed.

Included in this volume are the activities of more than fifty military bases relating to UFOs, innumerable violations of sensitive airspace by unknown craft and analyses of the Roswell controversy, the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel, and the Condon Committee Report. Dolan highlights the development of civilian anti-secrecy movements, which flourished in the 1950s and 1960s until the adoption of an official government policy and subsequent "closing of the door" during the Nixon administration.

 

1973 – 1991

ufo2-cover-smThis is the 2nd volume in Richard Dolan's series, "UFOs and the National Security State," which covers the UFO phenomenon from the 1940s to the present day.

Volume 2, "The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991," analyzes the UFO sightings, politics, and research that occurred during the last two decades of the cold war. Working from archival sources, professional journals, and his own investigations, Dolan describes UFO encounters worldwide, demonstrating that the phenomenon is global, and the result of advanced technology. Many cases involved sensitive military airspace.

These include intrusions over U.S. air bases; attempts to intercept a UFO over Tehran; the landing of an unknown object near two airbases in Britain; large boomerang-shaped craft near New York City; unexplained triangular craft seen throughout the U.S. and Europe; strange objects in Earth orbit seen by Soviet and American astronauts; and encounters with UFOs from around the world.

Dolan also studies "UFO politics," describes the black-budget connection, and provides a geopolitical analysis to explain the whys and hows of UFO secrecy. Finally, he provides a history of UFO research. He recreates the discussions and debates concerning alien abductions, animal mutilations, intelligence community infiltration into UFO research, the controversial MJ-12 documents, the Gulf Breeze controversy, reverse engineering of alien technology, crop circles, and more. Dolan also studies the effect of such new technologies as the Internet on UFO research. This is a complete history of the phenomenon, the secrecy, and the response by researchers who sought to understand the mystery.

Behind it all is the backdrop of a world in technological, economic, and political transformation. This book takes the reader through a turning point in the history of the UFO phenomenon, as well as the history of the modern world.

After Disclosure

"A.D. by Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel is an important attempt to prepare us for what will one day be inevitable: an open understanding that we are not alone. Not in this universe, and not even on Planet Earth." – Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D, Apollo 14 Astronaut

"I've imagined this future many times, but these guys actually wrote the book on it! Zabel and Dolan have brilliantly created a compelling blend of history and informed speculation that makes their exciting world seem like tomorrow's news today. Don't dare miss it! 'Nuff said." – Stan Lee, creator of Spiderman, X-Men, Avengers

"What if the UFO cover-up is real and what if it ended? After Disclosure poses this fascinating question and looks at the societal consequences of such a revelation. Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel have produced a thoughtful and provocative analysis that goes well beyond the usual scope of books on UFOs and alien life." – Nick Pope, former chief of UK Ministry of Defence UFO Desk

"You may not have ever considered what life will be like after the reality of UFOs becomes publicly known. But Richard M. Dolan and Bryce Zabel have. Their book is absorbing and thought provoking. Don't miss it." – Jim Marrs, New York Times best-selling author of Crossfire

"Considering the overwhelming evidence that Earth is being visited by alien spacecraft and that many intelligence agencies and military groups have known this to be true for some time, we certainly need to consider the serious question of what happens when Disclosure actually occurs. This book by Zabel and Dolan is the first in-depth attempt to answer that question. It is long overdue and sets a high standard of discussion about this very complex issue. Well worth reading." – Stanton T. Friedman, MSc., nuclear physicist, author of Top Secret/Majic, Science Was Wrong

"As a physician, researcher, and creative writer, I stand on the shoulders of others to see and climb the next mountain. A.D. After Disclosure is a brilliant, enjoyable primer that holds a feast of ideas that will make any audience think and wonder. This work offers a place to stand where others may take up the challenge and travel to places none of us could conceive. Richard and Bryce have performed a great service both to our culture and that of the 'Others.'" – Dr. Jeffrey Galpin, infectious disease specialist, molecular biologist, AIDS researcher

"Disclosure, the formal acknowledgment by the world's governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race, is inevitable. So was this how-to book on what to do when a new world begins." – Stephen Bassett, executive director, Paradigm Research Group

What if UFO secrecy ended tomorrow? The transition from B.C. (Before Confirmation) to A.D. (After Disclosure) is the ultimate "what if?" scenario in which the calendar is reset and history begins again.

This work of speculative non-fiction combines meticulous fact-finding from historian/researcher Richard M. Dolan and forward-leaning scenarios from journalist/screenwriter Bryce Zabel on the world's most mind-bending subject. The authors predict radical changes after official acknowledgment that at least some UFOs are intelligently controlled craft from somewhere other than Earth. A.D. After Disclosure isn't afraid to make mind-blowing, specific predictions, such as:

•  Congress will hold Watergate-style hearings and ask secret-keepers, "What did you know and when did you know it?"
•  The first decade A.D. (After Disclosure) will be like a high-tech 1960s, spawning massive cultural and societal change.
•  Abductees will file a class-action suit against the government for withholding critical information.
•  All the textbooks on planet Earth--from history to science — will need an immediate review.

Whether disclosure leads to social panic or ushers in a new era of unity and peace, it will undoubtedly be a game-changing event.
