About the Author

Dr. Jacques Vallee is a leading researcher on the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects world-wide. Born in France, he studied astrophysics, and received his Ph.D. in computer science in 1967 from Northwestern University. The real-life model for the French scientist played by Francois Truffant in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," Dr. Vallee's books have sold well over a million copies in many languages.

Reviews

"A computer specialist, Vallee became interested in UFOs after seeing an unidentified flying object near his home in France. His journals encompass a major portion of his professional life: his initial training in astronomy, his emigration to the United States, and his close association with J. Allen Hynek, noted adviser to the U.S. Air Force on UFOs. Vallee admits that he is no closer to an explanation now than he was 25 years ago as to what these objects represent. His research, however, points toward a paranormal answer. Vallee characterizes the scientific community's lack of attention to UFO research as "one of the great intellectual failures of this century" and argues that U.S. government agencies have kept the best UFO data hidden and have shamelessly manipulated the public record. Vallee's journals comprise a fascinating intellectual odyssey that will be enjoyed by anyone interested in open inquiry tempered by rational thought."-Gary D.
