UFOs and Popular Culture
An Encyclopedia of Contemporary Mythology
UFO culture has penetrated America with a vengeance. From religious beliefs and legends to movies and TV shows, from advertising and celebrities to Internet sites and photo ops, this illustrated A-to-Z encyclopedia is your first-stop resource for understanding UFO beliefs and their impact on contemporary America. Among the topics covered:
A level-headed foreword by folklorist Thomas Bullard puts the UFO phenomenon into folkloric and psychological perspective. A general index allows full subject access. Whimsical and fascinating, yet serious in what it reveals about our collective psyche, UFOs and Popular Culture explores a rich facet of Americana that is here to stay - at least until "they" take over.
