From Booklist:

Whatever the cause, hundreds of people--perhaps thousands--around the world are recounting strange and vivid experiences of being abducted and medically examined by seemingly alien beings in unearthly surroundings. This volume contains the papers presented at a conference on UFO abduction experiences held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, June 13^-17, 1992. The scientists and researchers who presented the 118 papers examined the medical and physical evidence and offered their personal perspectives on this complex phenomenon. Especially interesting are reports of alleged bodily implants and the varied theories that might account for those experiences. Selected papers include "The Influence of Investigators on UFO Abduction Reports" (Thomas E. Bullard, Indiana University); "Hypnosis and Accuracy of Abduction Memory" (Stuart Appelle, SUNY-Brockport); "Physical Evidence and Abductions" (David Pritchard, MIT); "Religious Perspective of Stories: Contactee to Abductee" (J. Gordon Melton, UC^-Santa Barbara); and "Psychosocial Characteristics of Abductees" (Mark Rodeghier, University of Illinois at Chicago). The unabridged questions and comments of conference participants that followed the presentations are also reprinted. George Eberhart
