Ralph Blumenthal, a staff reporter for The New York Times from 1964 to 2009, is the author of The Believer: Alien Encounters, Hard Science, and the Passion of John Mack.
Here he reviews the history of alien abductions, starting with the 1961 case of Betty and Barney Hill. Many related phenomena are addressed, including implants, physical evidence, and cattle mutilations. Of particular interest are the claims of those who maintain they can initiate contact, themselves, with aliens. He also reviews recent U.S. Navy sightings of UFOs.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980).
