About The Book – UFOs Today
UFOs TODAY -70 Years of Lies, Disinformation, and Government Cover-Up, presents UFO studies that colleagues and I have undertaken during about thirty years as field investigators. The material is generally presented in chronological order, beginning with information that the government had been investigating the phenomena prior to the Kenneth Arnold event. What makes it truly unique and valuable is that several of my co-investigators and I have not only probed the organisations where the research on UFOs has been conducted, we have also worked in many of the most crucial institutions involved in the UFO field. Thus, unlike the few others that have done this kind of research, we have had an inside tract to understanding the organisations, the researchers, and the results of the studies. Examination of government knowledge of the UFO phenomena is vital because it provides important evidence about whether the subject is taken seriously by government authorities, and can potentially provide technical information about the phenomena. The manuscript also includes never-before-published first-hand interviews and correspondence with many of the most important and the initial investigators of the phenomena. This is significant because many of these people have died and those who are living are quite old. Thus, this research provides a historical record of the reasoning and opinions of those making an initial impact in this field. It also covers the complexity of the phenomena, which has contributed to the difficulty and controversy in conducting this field of research. The manuscript also features the testimony of a former US Deputy Sheriff who was a witness to the UFO crash at Roswell. This gentleman’s unique testimony will be published here for the first time. UFOs TODAY is like no other book on the UFO subject as it comes from an academic who worked behind the scenes at a number of locations and witnessed the official cover-up for herself.
