Richard Dolan is known for his meticulous research and has written many books on UFO history. Recently, he and his co-author Bryce Zabel wrote A.D. After Disclosure, which studies the ramification in a world where the reality of extraterrestrial life is a fact. Now Dolan is working on a new book ‘Rethinking ET: UFOs for the 21st Century Mind.’ In a world plagued with war, financial collapse, disease and societal problems, how relevant are UFOs these days. During this interview filmed at the 2013 International UFO Congress, Dolan explored all possibilities and the new technological advances that make the UFO topic more mainstream, yet difficult for researchers since affordable technology can produce Hollywood-like footage that can fool the most discerning eye. The interview is available on video (inside Veritas TV) and audio.

Richard M. Dolan was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1962. He holds an MA in History from the University of Rochester and a BA in History from Alfred University. He earned a Certificate in Political Theory from Oxford University and was a Rhodes Scholar finalist. Prior to his interest in anomalous phenomena, Dolan studied US Cold War strategy, Soviet history, and international diplomacy.
In 2000, he published a 500-page study, UFOs and the National Security State. This is the first volume of a two-part historical narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Included are the records of more than fifty military bases relating to innumerable violations of sensitive airspace by unknown objects, demonstrating that the US military has taken the topic of UFOs seriously indeed.
Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell has called Dolan’s book “monumental,” while Dr. Hal Puthoff, Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, has declared it to be “a must-read for serious students in the field. Dolan has published numerous articles on anomalous phenomena, science, and the intelligence community for UFO Magazine. In 2003, he helped to found Phenomena, a magazine dedicated to leading edge issues pertaining to science and society, and for which he continues to serve as Senior Editor and regular contributor. Richard Dolan also continues to research and write volume two of UFOs and the National Security State. He lives with his family in Rochester, New York.
