David Clarke and Andy Roberts:
FLYING SAUCERERS A social history of UFOlogy - Paperback

United: Alternative Albion (an Imprint of Heart of Albion Press), 2007. This book is brand new. Since August 1945 the Western world has been fascinated with the notion of 'flying saucers', subsequently termed 'Unidentified Flying Objects' or 'UFOs'. Numerous 'experts' have offered explanations, often involving extraterrestrial entities. These early experts promoted their beliefs enthusiastically. Some were undoubtedly sincere – although somewhat maverick – while a few might have been intentional 'psychological con men'. The various opinions of these 'experts' generated extensive tabloid and media attention in the 1950s and 60s with the result that reported sightings became wrapped up in any number of beliefs and legends. David Clarke and Andy Roberts carefully unpick the origin of these beliefs, looking carefully at the key individuals involved. This reveals how the paranoia of the Cold War era generated its own myths and also shows that many aspects of the subsequent 'New Age' ideology had their origins in the UFO cults. Flying Saucerers is not written for people who believe in UFOs. Readers are not expected to believe in their 'nuts and bolts' existence, still less the prospects of a Close Encounter of the Third Kind. Instead it is both a social history and a history of ideas, revealing how the notions of a few inspired 'experts' evolved into one of its most pervasive modern day myths. David Clarke is a British university lecturer. He obtained his PhD in 'Folklore and Cultural Tradition' in 1999, and now teaches Journalism Studies at Sheffield Hallam University. He also lectures on the subjects of supernatural belief and urban legends at the National Centre for English Cultural Tradition (part of the University of Sheffield). Andy Roberts is a veteran fortean writer, researcher and broadcaster. He has written eight books on the subjects of UFOs and folklore and has contributed to many journals including The Guardian and Fortean Times. 'The best book on the flying saucer phenomenon for 20 years, by the two most sane commentators on the subject.' Paul Screeton Folklore Frontiers '... there is no doubt in my mind that Flying Saucerers is one of the most important ufological contributions of the last few years; and it is vital reading for anyone and everyone that has an interest in belief systems, how beliefs, ideas and theories originate, grow, mutate, become accepted, and are then perceived as hard fact...
