I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Phillip Mantle and Carl
Nagaitis's new book, "Without Consent", normally I don't read a book in one
sitting but I couldn't put this one down. Phillip and Carl have done their
research on this one; it covers UFO sightings and abductions through out the
UK for at least the last 50 years.
The reports featured in the book were well written and told without the
usual "fluff" we see so much of here in the US, some of the abduction
reports were enough to make the hair on the back of my head stand up, they
were that scary!
I particularly enjoyed the reports from Police officers who were victims of
alien abductions, as they are the most credible of reporters (in my
opinion!), as you know, any officer who reports he was abducted by aliens
won't have much of a career ladder, so I think they are to be taken with
much more credibility than your average citizen's UFO report. Police
officers have with much to lose and little to gain by going public. I also
really liked the fact that in the UK they don't rely on "hypno-therapists"
as we do here, giving the witness's even more credibility.
Without Consent proves that alien abductions are not just an "American"
phenomenon, but a world wide "happening" that we are just now really
learning the full "truth" about. It is very strange to me that the UK
experience isn't the same as we experience here in the US, the objects seen
in the sky are different, the humanoids seen are very dissimilar to our
standard "greys", and they seem to be less hostile than our "friends"
I found that in his book lots of the UK's abductee's are reporting "missing
time" events, similar to the infamous Betty and Barney Hill case from here
in the US back in the 1960's. I in my own research have found that missing
time reports are such a common theme that I question anyone reporting an
encounter without missing some time.
The best thing about Phillip and Carl's work is that they don't demand you
to believe, they just provide the facts of the cases, and let the reader
decide the merits of the witness's reports. I really appreciated that, one
of the worst things found in modern US Ufology books is the lack of
objectivity delivered by the writer; Without Consent is completely objective
and written in a easy to understand style.
This book would be a great tool for the UFO researcher, and it would also
make a good gift to someone who is just starting out in Ufology/Abductions,
as it is so well written and clear. I highly recommend it. -Jim Hickman
