9781933665306: REVELATIONS: Alien Contact and Human Deception

In REVELATIONS, the final volume of a trilogy, Dr. Jacques Vallee presents startling evidence that well-constructed hoaxes and media manipulations have misled UFO researchers, diverting them from the UFO phenomenon itself. Vallee takes readers step by step into the tangled web of UFOlogy's dark side, in an effort to clear the ever-thickening underbrush that has obscured the real nature of the UFO phenomenon.

From the Publisher:

I first met Dr. Vallee while arranging the publicity tour for his previous book Confrontations. Even though I had seen "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and knew that he was Spielberg's chief technical advisor on the film as well as the real-life model for the scientist played by Francois Truffant, I wasn't sure what to expect. After all, many people in the UFO community are, shall we say, extremely zealous. I was very impressed by his thoughtful manner and clearheaded analyses. Dr. Vallee is widely recognized and honored as the premier investigating scientist and UFO researcher. I also had the pleasure of arranging the publicity tour for Revelations, the concluding volume in Dr. Vallee's Alien Contact Trilogy. In this book, Dr. Vallee explores the various UFO hoaxes and media manipulation that have misled researchers. His painstaking investigation of industrial and governmental coverups leads to some astonishing and, at times, controversial conclusions. Vallee's thesis is that the fast-growing belief in alien contact is causing too many cases to be accepted as real that are not -- and conversely, too many actual ones go overlooked or misreported. Revelations comes in response to those oversights. It is both an experiment in truth-seeking and a scientific detective story.

From the Inside Flap:

"[A] bracing finale to Vallee's 'Alien Contact trilogy'...A forceful and refreshingly iconoclastic study."
THE KIRKUS REVIEWS

In REVELATIONS, Dr.Vallee, the inspiration for the character played by Francois Truffaut in Steven Spielberg's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, analyzes the full gamut of sensational UFO "incidents" From the alleged history of saucer "crashes" and the retrieval of aliens by the U.S. government to reports of a subterranean community of hostile humanoids in the American Southwest, this is part scientific detective sotry, part experiement in truth seeking, REVELATIONS and is an astonishing document that is certain to provoke controversy.
The two earlier books in Dr. Vallee's Alien Contact trilogy are DIMENSIONS and CONFRONTATIONS.
