Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us by Jim Marrs, Harper Collins Publisher, 1997, 434 pages.  Available in both hardback and paperback.
Jim Marrs is an investigative journalist whose previous book Crossfire on the Kennedy assasination was a source for Oliver Stone's film "JFK." Alien Agenda is a good popular overview of the subject of UFOs.  Most topics in ufology are covered in the book.  The Stevenson close encounter near Circleville, Ohio on February 1, 1948 is mentioned in chapter four. There are some things in the book I wouldn't have included.  I found the chapter on the Moon too speculative and based on rumors not fact but that's my opinion. Also there are some minor errors. For example on page 95, Mac Brazel is described as the "owner" of the Roswell crash site. Not true. Brazel discovered the Roswell debris on the ranch where he was a lowly farm hand, he didn't own much of anything let alone a ranch. However its an easy mistake to make. Aside from that. Alien Agenda is an enjoyable book. There are photographs in it but most of them are of personalities in the history of UFOs. There are no UFO photographs in the book except for one which the author states may very well be a temperature inversion.
