Dark White: Aliens, Abductions, and the UFO Obsession

£5.99

Product description

One of the most startling developments on the UFO scene in the last few years must surely have been the endorsement of the abduction phenomenon by a Harvard professor of psychiatry, John Mack. The background to this, and to many other aspects of alleged alien abduction, is well discussed by Jim Schnabel in this sceptical and witty book. Mack is certainly an important figure in the abduction story but even more influential is Budd Hopkins, the man who taught Mack the art of "recovering" memories of abduction under hypnosis. Hopkins was at first an artist but later became a full-time UFO researcher fully convinced of the reality of abduction. His story is told in detail by Schnabel, and a curious one it is. It underpins the whole abduction saga in the USA. Another prominent figure in the abduction story is the horror novelist Whitley Streiber, who found he was an abductee and was studied and helped by Hopkins. Eventually the two men fell out but Streiber went on to write his enormously successful book about his experiences, "Communion: a true story", which has sold many millions of copies worldwide. This is a fascinating book for any lovers of science and the quirky, metaphysical questions within science.

This paperback first edition is in "very good" condition; there are some markings to the cover.
