In this definitive comprehensive A-Z compendium revealing all points of view of the alien experience, UFO historian Ronald Story gathers together more than 100 experts in the field of alien facts, fallacies, fiction, and films to explore the incredible phenomenon of extraterrestrial life. Here are the profound theories of scientists and absolute believers, the provocative questions of skeptics, and the legendary hoaxes that made headlines. Here are the hard-to-dismiss eyewitness accounts that made us think twice about God, the ancient pyramids, life and death; the classic and sometimes outlandish sci-fi movies that fueled America's fears; the effects of the atomic bomb on the world's people; and the prescient visions of such literary figures as H.G. Wells. From history's earliest recorded accounts of alien life through the most up-to-date and authoritative information of our collective UFOria, the more than 400 entries in this massive compilation provide fascinating reading for anyone who has ever pondered the universal question: Are we alone?
