Too many books on UFOs seem to be compiled simply by reading earlier UFO books. I've lost count of the number of UFO books that recycle tales
(complete with old errors or introducing new ones) without adding any real insight.
Perhaps too narrow a view is being taken.
Do members of ATS have any recommendations to share on non-UFO books that have contributed to their understanding of issues relating to UFO
For example, in recent years I've found the following interesting and indirectly very relevant to understanding ufology:
(1) Books on the sociology of science, which give some insight into possible constraints on issues investigated by (or written about) by
(2) Quite a few academic books on conspiracy theories, which give a wider perspective on the psychological and sociological issues relating to ufology
(3) Books on remote viewing, which give quite a bit of insight into the personalities of certain individuals that are mentioned in connection in UFO
books in connection with the Aviary etc.
What have you found particularly interesting and relevant to Ufology from beyond UFO books (or UFO websites and documentaries)?
All the best,
