A book about the USAF investigation of the UFO phenomenon during the early 1950s.
Captain Edward Ruppelt was head of USAF UFO investigations in the early 1950s and author of The Report On Unidentified Flying Objects, the first book to look into what President Eisenhower termed ìthe military industrial complexî and how it dealt with this strange, new phenomenon.
An American Demonology is not a book aimed at research specialists. Easy to read, it discusses the life and work of Captain Ruppelt, who tried desperately to convince the American Air Force that UFOs were real. Alongside this, it takes a broad look at the politics of American technology and science within the military culture of the era, sightings of UFOs over Washington in Summer 1952, Project Grudge, and the burgeoning media interest in ìflying saucersî.
Foreword by Jerome Clark, author of The UFO Encyclopedia.
Introduction by Nick Pope, MOD UFO investigator and author of Open Skies Closed Minds.
