Richard Dolan

Richard Dolan
Richard Dolan is considered by many
students of the UFO phenomenon to be
the pre-eminent historian of the subject.
He is the author of two volumes of
history, UFOs and the National Security
State, as well as an analysis of the
future, A.D. After Disclosure: The
People’s Guide to Life After Contact.
Richard’s writing is widely seen as
ufology’s gold standard. His seminal
history, UFOs and the National Security
State, has inspired such statements as
“the best history ever written about
UFOs” by best-selling author Whitley Strieber, and “masterful and important” by Dr. Edgar Mitchell of
Apollo 14.
A.D. After Disclosure, which Richard co-authored with Bryce Zabel (creator of the television series Dark
Skies), has been widely hailed as among the most original works in all of UFO literature, a fearless and
analytical “what if” scenario that discusses the deep impact that would be brought about by the end of
UFO secrecy.
Among Richard’s main themes are the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO coverup,
the possible nature of the non-humans themselves, and what their presence here means for our
civilization. This has led him to take a fresh approach to the topic of “Exopolitics” and to develop unique
insights into the practical challenges and opportunities for a true disclosure of the UFO phenomenon.
Richard has also written numerous articles, spoken at conferences around the world, is a frequent guest
on radio shows such as Coast-to-Coast AM, and has done a great deal of television work. In 2006 he
hosted a six-episode series called SciFi Investigate. More recently, he appeared with NBC’s Lester Holt
for a special two-hour documentary, “Inside Secret Government Warehouses: Shocking Revelations.”
Richard was born in Brooklyn, New York, studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, was a
finalist for a Rhodes scholarship, and completed his graduate work in history at the University of
Rochester. Prior to his interest in UFOs, he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture,
and international diplomacy.
