Belief in an Age of Suspense: The Changing Emotional Landscape of the UFO and Alien Contact Phenomen

Greg Eghigian uncovers the global history of UFO and alien contact phenomena.


Reports of flying saucers and encounters with aliens have been a part of popular culture since the end of World War II. Explanations for their rise and spread have ranged from extraterrestrial reconnaissance to mass hysteria. Often overlooked, however, is the fact that stories about and responses to the UFO phenomenon have changed over time. How do we account for these changes? And what clues might they provide in helping to explain the enduring fascination with UFOs and alien contact?
