Firestorm: Dr. James E. McDonald's Fight for UFO Science
Ann Druffel

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Firestorm Dr. James E. McDonald's fight for UFO Science is the fascinating chronicle of an intellectual giant and fearless fighter who nearly accomplished what no one has yet done --examine the strange phenomena of UFOs through the uncompromising eyes of the scientific community. Firestorm is far more than a biography of a scientist. It delves deeply into the behind the scenes manipulations, pokitics and intrigues encountered by McDonald and other reserachers who have sought to get the topic studied in an open manner by the appropriate authorities. Druffel's personal access to the McDonald private archives allowed her to authoritatively document the real history of the early days of waht is now known as the "Great UFO Cover-Up".
