Hi, Roy,

A really excellent book, which everybody seeking an informed
perspective on the subject ought to have in his or her library,
is Michael Swords and Robert Powell's UFOs and Government: A
Historical Inquiry, which Anomalist Books published last year.
(My review will appear soon in Fortean Times.) It has an
additional list of international contributors whose names
Listfolk will recognize: Ballester Olmos, Chalker, Svahn, and
the grounded like.

Resisting all but the most reasonable, evidence-backed
speculation (in short: no conspiracy theories), it details the
official history of the phenomenon as it can be gleaned from
voluminous documents and interviews. Not always an edifying
story, certainly, and even maddening at times, but UFO&G is
essential reading, up there with Ruppelt, Jacobs's first book,
and Greenwood & Fawcett as a reliable, illuminating -- and,
unlike the just-mentioned, fully up-to-date -- guide to its

The lesson one takes from the book's nearly 600 pages is that
UFO reports are better suited to scientific analysts than to
ministries of defense.
