WW Norton
A fascinating look at the communities surrounding UFOs—researchers, enthusiasts, charlatans, and mystics.
Part personal odyssey, part espionage adventure, and part social history, Mirage Men delves into the world of UFOs, those who believe in them, and those who would have us believe in them. This is not your average UFO book. Mirage Men explores the strange and symbiotic relationship between the U.S. military and intelligence agencies and the community who believes strongly that UFOs have visited earth.

Just how has the U.S. government manipulated the public’s belief in UFOs to hide military aircraft experimentation? Among the UFO believers are the “mirage men”—a close-knit group of men and women whose careers span science medicine, the military, and the intelligence services. They believe they have received parts of a flying saucer–shaped puzzle, whose final pieces lie tantalizingly out of reach. Dive into this comprehensive and astonishing exposition of exactly what these Mirage Men believe, and why. Interviews, anecdotes, and cold hard facts make this a persuasive book that’s hard to ignore. Many are sure that official disclosure—government announcement of extraterrestrial presence—is just around the corner.

Pilkington, a writer for UK magazines and newspapers, sets out on a journey to uncover the truth about UFOs in America and discovers that the truth is stranger and more complex than either ufologists or debunkers believe. Written in an accessible narrative style with a sense of humor, the book draws on interviews with intelligence agents, disinformation specialists, and UFO hunters. Sorting out their outrageous claims and counterclaims, the author comes to the conclusion that US intelligence agencies have actually been promoting, not covering up, stories of flying saucers, aliens, and secret underground bases. The 5.5x8" book includes b&w contemporary photos of sites and of historical aircraft now in museums. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
