If she's so smart, why did she include so many solved UFO cases
in her book, and present them with hardly any critical comment?
She seems to be unduly impressed by military uniforms with rows
of medals, and with academic gowns, when assessing UFO reports,
and she includes some contributions from persons notorious in
ufology for their lack of objectivity.

To take but two examples to start with, from the book UFOs:
1947-1997 (edited by Hilary Evans and Dennis Stacy, John Brown
Publishing, London, 1997):

In an article, The Belgian 1989-1990 UFO Wave, Belgian
researcher Wim Van Utrecht expresses his doubts about the
authenticity of the Petit-Rechain "flying triangle" photo, and
his suspicions have recently proved to have been justified. He
also provides plausible explanations for most (not all) other
sightings in this UFO wave.

The article Trans-en-Provence: When Science And Belief Go Hand
In Hand, by Eric Maillot and Jacques Scornaux, is an excellent,
detailed demolition job on this notorious UFO "landing" and the
bungled investigations of it.

For those who have the time to spare there is plenty of critical
investigation and comment on the better-known sightings in
Kean's book which should convince all but the most hopelessly
credulous that it is little more than just another UFO gee-whiz
book.
