Abstract

A history of the various manifestations and shifting meaning of the Twentieth Century's single great contribution to mythology: the UFO. Neither a credulous work of conspiracy theory nor a sceptical debunking of belief in 'flying saucers', How UFOs Changed the World explores the origins of UFOs in the build-up to the First World War and how reports of them have changed in tandem with world events, science and culture. The book also explores the overlaps between UFO belief and religion.
