At the threshold: UFOs, science, and the New Age

Front Cover
Wild Flower Press, 1997 - Unidentified flying objects - 268 pages
At the Threshold is an overview of UFO discoveries in the context of the battle between mainstream science and researchers who "dare to study" UFOs. It explores the history of UFO research and how it's been labeled a "deviant science", a definition that emerged gradually out of military/governmental investigations and coverups. Although physical scientists are generally perceived as being hostile to ufology, individual scientists are less condemning of UFO studies than it would appear from the taboo status of UFOs in academic institutions. In fact, respectable speculation among astronomers about ET civilization is that there is probably a great deal of it in our own galaxy and we should try to contact it.
