Summary

This is the "Das Kapital" of the 20th century - an essential text, and the main theoretical work of the Situationists. Few works of political and cultural theory have been as enduringly provocative. From its publication amid the social upheavals of the 1960s up to the present, the volatile theses of this book have decisively transformed debates on the shape of modernity, capitalism, and everyday life in the 21st century. This is the original translation by Fredy Perlman, kept in print continuously for the last 50 years, keeping the flame of personal and collective autonomy alive.

The Expanding Case for the UFO - First Edition and Association Copy

Summary

"From the craters of the moon, the jungle-ridden cities of prehistory, the world's scattered Pygmy tribes, and the columns of yesterday's newspaper comes new and thought-provoking evidence for the existence of space life." Such were the words on the original dust jacket of this, the first edition of The Expanding Case For the UFO. First released in 1957, The Expanding Case was the sequel to perhaps the most notorious book in the history of ufology: The Case for the UFO, which drew the interest of the US Navy and resulted in the infamously annotated "Varo Edition". The annotator of the Varo Edition, the mysterious Carlos Allende, claimed to have been a witness to the Philadelphia Experiment. Allende seemed to think that the book's author, astronomer M.K. Jessup, knew more about the experiment than he was admitting, and had maybe played a role in it. The Expanding Case For the UFO was the last book ever written by M.K. Jessup, and it ties together many of the controversial threads first exposed in The Case for the UFO. This special reprint features the original "lost" introduction by noted zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson. As evidence to how dangerous this material was at the time, it was only two years later that Jessup - after experiencing threatening phone calls and alarming synchronicities "too unbelievable to describe" - would be found dead in a park in Dade County, Florida - supposedly a "suicide". While Allende claimed Jessup killed the hitman sent to terminate him, and was able to escape by trading identities with the hitman, the facts remain obscured - like the UFOs themselves - in a most intriguing fog.

Summary

New Saucerian proudly presents perhaps the most famous flying saucer book ever: Gray Barker's They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers! From flying saucers to the underground denizens of Lemuria, it's all here in this ufological classic. This 2014 reprint features the wonderful cover art from the dust jacket to the original hardback, first published in 1956. This edition faithfully reproduces the original, both inside and out, and is a great addition to any saucer collection. Just who are these darkly dressed men who go after UFO witnesses - those who might "know too much"? Why do they frighten, interrogate, and physically harm innocent civilians? Barker's answers shocked the world and raised awareness about the threat of the MIB. If you enjoyed Barker's Men in Black: The Secret Terror Among Us, you will enjoy this finely crafted star in the pulp pantheon.
