A roll of film was dropped into the mailbox of UFO researcher, Jaime Shandera. When
developed, the pictures showed documents that appeared to verify the existence of Majestic-12...a secret government organization established in 1947 by President Truman. Its purpose: to conceal the fact that extraterrestrial life has been visiting Earth for years and to study the technology and even the bodies of aliens recovered from crashed spacecraft. While these documents are called hoaxes by many debunkers, s...more

I borrowed this book from Michael Miley's library while visiting him at his home in Sonoma, California. Stanton Friedman is strongly committed to a scientific materialistic interpretation of UFO phenomena and maintains relatively high standards in his work. If you want to consider the extraterrestrial hypothesis, Friedman's work is worth investigation.

This book is less about physics and more about the evidence for US cover-ups of UFOs retrievals, particularly in Roswell and Corona, NM as possibl...more
I enjoyed reading a book on UFO's by a physicist, he approached the subject in a manner that works for my mind set as he provides charts and numbers. I actually appreciated how Friedman spent so much time accounting for his process in searching archives; The information becomes mundane, but (assuming he isn't just outright lying) tells the reader a lot about his dedication to the subject. It also is a comment on how "free" information actually is. He does provide a chapter by chapter bibliograpg...more

Stanton Friedman is the man who broke the Roswell story back in 1978 when he first talked to Jesse Marcel. This book is about the other great contribution he made to UFOlogy, the discovery and vetting of the Majestic-12 documents, purportedly a briefing paper for President-elect Dwight Eisenhower back in 1952. Friedman is a dogged researcher and this is his seminal book.
oh yes...there was a group of individuals that dealt with Alien craft do I know? ...this book full of painstaking research informed me. That's how.

Stanton T. Friedman received BSc and MSc degrees in physics from the University of Chicago in 1955 and 1956. He was employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for such companies as GE, GM, Westinghouse, TRW Systems, Aerojet General Nucleonics, and McDonnell Douglas on such advanced, classified, eventually cancelled, projects as nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets, and nuclear powerplant...more
