9781933665283: DIMENSIONS: A Casebook of Alien Contact

In DIMENSIONS, the first volume of a trilogy, Dr. Jacques Vallee reexamines the historical record that led to the modern UFO phenomenon and to the belief in alien contact. He then tackles the enigma of abduction reports, which come from various times and various countries, as well as the psychic and spiritual components of the contact experience. In the last portion of the book, he notes the factors that inhibit research into the phenomenon--the triple coverup and political motivations--and concludes that the extraterrestrial theory is simply not strange enough to explain the facts.

From the Publisher:

This is the first volume in Dr. Vallee's Alien Contact Trilogy. Dr. Vallee has been widely recognized and honored as the premier investigating scientist in the realm of UFO research. He was the true-life model for the scientist played by Francois Truffant in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Vallee was also Steven Spielberg's chief technical advisor on the film. Trained in his native France as an astrophysicist , Dr. Vallee moved to the USA in 1962 and received his Ph.D. in computer science in 1967 from Northwestern University, where he was a close associate of the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek.

From the Inside Flap:

he modern UFO era, thousands of honest scientists and informed laymen have seen through the official denials, the suppressions, and the whitewash -- and realized that, indeed, we are not alone. To them, author Jacques Vallee, the world's most renowned UFO expert, presents a tantalizing question. What if -- just if -- these alien visitors are Not from other planets? What if they have always been among us?

What if we can finally prove the case to which so much evidence points: That they have lived on earth for centuries, perhaps, from the beginning of time. That they may inhabit another dimension, a dimension so startlingly different from our own that our consciousness lurches to experience it religiously.

At once exhilarating and persuasive, Vallee's brilliant insights include a metaphysical odyssey through some of the most mystifying incidents in religious and mythological lore.

The miraculous visions of the Lady of Fatima in 1917.
