This is rather like Vallee’s much earlier book, Anatomy of a Confrontatjons, representing both an elaboration of his earlier suggestions for research and the results of his own study during the intervening decades.
The truth is out there.
Here, he expands on that theory by reference to the cases he’s explored during the past three decades, concluding that “UFOs represent a technology confrontatiojs of harmful actions”–hence this book’s provocative title rather than Whitley Strieber’s more pacific Communion or Transformation.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Originally, Vallee, along with confrontation about everyone else, viewed UFOs as extraterrestrial. Books by Jacques F. No trivia or quizzes yet.
After reading his first book “Dimensions” I knew I had to move onto this one to continue the research. Some of his reasons for straying off the UFO reservation are, I believe, available on this website. Instead, Vallee believes UFOs are primarily paranormal in nature.
