For decades, researchers have exhaustively documented modern UFO phenomena, but questions remain about the origins of these strange objects and the intentions of the beings associated with them. In Alien Identities, Richard L. Thompson shows that answers may lie in the records of ancient civilizations claiming thousands of years of contact with races appearing to have an unearthly origin. Startling parallels between modern UFO accounts and events described in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India offer fresh insight into the nature of exotic incidents reported throughout human history.
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Alien Identities: Ancient Insights into Modern UFO Phenomena is the title of the initial 1993 publication and 1995 2nd edition. There is now a new edition, Parallels, which uses the author’s original choice for the title. Otherwise Alien Identies 2nd edition and Parallels are identical, except for the forward.
