Aliens and Man: A Synopsis of Facts and Beliefs

When it comes to extraterrestrials, UFOs, crop circles, and ancient-astronaut literature, most intelligent readers are repulsed by New Age hype, turned off by Erik Van Daniken, flustered by blatant pseudo-science, and deeply chagrined at how even the History Channel got dragged into the tabloid and sensational.

Yet many intelligent, open-minded readers harbor secret interests: in the Great Pyramid and how it was built, in mythic tales of sky gods coming and going, from Ezekiel to the Rig-Veda. They are awed by the intricate fractals in crop circles, and they more than take notice when a NASA astronaut says he was trailed in space by UFOs.

That questioning readership, however, swims in a vast sea of agnosticism—curious but not convinced. And there just aren't any books for them. None they can trust. None that reaches them. None that transcends tabloid fantasies to authentically treat issues with enough dispassion and scholarly erudition not to insult their intelligence. Here, Dr. Kroth gives the run-down on a wide range of evidence, and ponders how reliable any of it may be. Readers are left with all the elements to form their own equation.

"Jerry Kroth has bravely placed his neck on the academic chopping block by daring to address the question of the possible interaction of extraterrestrials with early humankind, a subject longed marked taboo by learning institutions dependent on the largess of both government and corporations, neither of which desire public discussion of such theories. Kroth crafts a cogent and engaging argument with an amazing blend of scientific and historical facts. If you want to keep your head in the comfortable sand, give this book a pass but if you are ready for an exciting bit of consciousness raising, be sure to read Aliens and Man."
Jim Marrs, “foremost investigative journalist in the U.S.” (Newshawk) and
author of Crossfire and Alien Agenda
. . . Thoroughly empirical, deeply creative, and a fascinating read!

I am enthralled! This is a refreshing leap from the encrusted time-
worn answers we were all raised to believe. I have no doubt this book
will be greeted as a significant contribution.

Pacifica Graduate School Author of The Inner Image
Jerry Kroth has pulled off an intellectual coup d'etat. . . This work
makes me feel like we have broken "the surly bonds of earth.”
