Description

It gives you the impression that especially the word 'the' was extremely expensive, as it is omitted countless times.

Flying Saucerers is a great book. Its subject is not flying saucers (or UFOs) but the people who see, report or study them and the people who write about them. The authors give many facts which may disappoint you at first glance, but that doesn't mean you can ignore them. Just a few: 1) People who report UFOs are not necessarily people who see them.

Andy Roberts redresses the balance in this book – revised and expanded since its first appearance in 2008 – in which the focus is on Britain as a "major crucible of LSD culture". In fact his story is so British that trippers include Sean Connery and Frankie Howerd, both of whom took the drug in LSD therapy. Just as the early history of LSD in America was bound up with the CIA, so Britain too had secret-state experimentation. Moving on from psychotherapeutic and military uses, Roberts's book soon blossoms into a rich exploration of British counter-culture in the 60s, when, in the words of Barry Miles, "the King's Road led straight to Glastonbury.

David Clarke and Andy Roberts carefully unpick the origin of these beliefs, looking carefully at the key individuals involved. Instead it is both a social history and a history of ideas, revealing how the notions of a few inspired 'experts' evolved into prevailing modern day myths.

David Clarke and Andy Roberts carefully unpick the origin of these beliefs, looking carefully at the key individuals involved.
