Written neither by a zealot nor a rabid debunker but a former New York Times reporter, Out There traces the actions of the Defense Intelligence Agency's UFO Working Group, charged with the mission to determine whether human life is truly alone in the universe. Triggered by a tip from an American spymaster in 1987 while researching his I Pledge Allegiance ... The True Story Of The Walkers: An American Spy Family, this work of journalism uncovers decades of government duplicity regarding its investigations of reported extraterrestrial visits. With 212 interviews and some 200 published sources, author Howard Blum's earnest reporting is a gripping and credible documentation of his journey from skepticism to belief.From Publishers Weekly:
Blum ( I Pledge Allegiance ) here offers a curious amalgam of science and apparent science fiction, ranging in subject from the bona fide quests of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) astrophysicists and radio astronomers to unverified reports of UFO sightings and the barmy project of a tiny Wisconsin town to build a landing site for flying saucers. But what is most arresting about his study is Blum's claim that the U.S. government has been gathering information about UFOs since 1947, with one or two hiatuses--and has kept these investigations secret. The culprits seem to be top military men, portrayed here as paranoid children, and members of our various spy operations. The book should cause a stir among readers kept far too long in the dark. First serial to Penthouse; TV rights to ABC; Preferred Choice Book Plan main selection.
