The government said it need Area 51 to protect America. They said they needed it for research. Now some say it has all been a terrible lie...
In the annals of UFO controversies there has never been a place like this: sixty square miles of desert and scrub just north of Las Vegas, Nevada. Officially known as a U.S. Air Force testing ground, this area has accounted for more UFO sightings and more inexplicable activity than any other in the world. leading experts to dub Area 51 "Earth's unofficial UFO headquarters."
Now UFO writer Susan Wright seeks to answer the riddle once and for all, delving into previously secret government documents, drawing on eyewitness accounts, and ripping the veil of secrecy off Area 51 and the research that really goes on there. The result is the most shocking and thoroughly documented UFO book you have ever read, a book that demonstrates that for fifty years the U.S. government has had one overriding policy on Area 51: whenever confronted with suspicions, facts, or photographs-conceal, deny and lie...

Praise for UFO HEADQUARTERS
"This book provides a fascinating and entertaining overview of the Area 51 controversy, placing it in its historical and sociological context. Wright has done a fine job of pulling out some of the more intriguing aspects of real and imagined government and military involvement with the UFO mystery. Whether your interest is in UFOs or the people who chase them, this fascinating book is well worth the read." --Nick Pope, author of OPEN SKIES, CLOSED MINDS and THE UNINVITED
"Well-researched information on UFOs and surrounding controversy. UFO HEADQUARTERS is an enjoyable read that encompasses the extremely topical and fascinating subject of UFO sightings and government involvement." --Kary B. Mullis, author of DANCING NAKED IN THE MIND FIELDFrom the Inside Flap:
Area 51 in Las Vegas, Nevada, was chosen by the United States government in the mid-1950s as the site for testing the U-2 spy plane. Its remote location and huge dry lake beds made it the perfect site for top-secret operations. Today it's being used to develop and fly stealthy high-speed aircraft such as the "Aurora" hypersonic spy plane and the TR-3A "Black Mantra.
It would seem, however, that there is a lot more going on in Area 51 than the authorities would like us to believe. From photographs to detailed eyewitness accounts to her own personal experiences with the mysteries surrounding the locale, Susan Wright provides very persuasive evidence that UFOs are appearing in Nevada, as well as in other locations in the United States. Perhaps the greater enigma is, why is this evidence being so persistently covered up?
UFO HEADQUARTERS is an exhaustive and riveting report on ufology today. For skeptic or believer, it is the book no inquisitive mind will want to overlook.
