Flying Saucers over Los Angeles: The UFO Craze of the 50s


From the Publisher:

Beginning with a previously unpublished manuscript by DeWayne B. Johnson entitled Flying Saucer over Los Angeles, this book chronicles who saw what, where and when during the earliest years of the flying saucer flap beginning June 24, 1947. Starting with such cases as the Roswell crash and the Maury Island incident, it continues to little known sightings presenting a contemporaneous view of the earliest UFO excitement in 1950s America unvarnished by the accumulated speculation of the last 46 years.  A more detailed account of the many early sightings has never before been published!

The book also presents one of the first analyses of the sociological and psychological dimensions of the UFO experience, written from a vantage point of certainty that flying saucers are real-borne, out by the actual news and witnesses accounts.  With a 16-page color insert of rare UFO photos and early flying saucer artwork, this book recreates the original excitement of the hysteria that swept across America. Copies of the Original news articles are provided in an appendix, with additional newsclippings from the New York Times and other papers.
