Berthold E. Schwarz, M.D., A reviewer
From ALTERNATE PERCEPTIONS, Winter, 1999
The more ancient, remote, and populous Far East including China, Japan, Tibet, India, and surrounding countries have rich traditions in their history, myths, and geopolitics for UFOs. In many instances venerable texts and writings can easily be extrapolated to the Western world and our era. In both cases--past and present, East and West--the twain exists and transcends the specific cultural and ethnic religious differences. Hartwig Hausdorf, like his famous and admired predecessor Nicholas Roerich--artist, explorer, guru--has traveled to these exotic lands, and, in some cases, to mysterious and impenetrable locations to witness, study, and learn all he can about various UFO experiences and encounters and their possible relationships to ancient monuments, pyramids, and archaeological artifacts. He provides a wide-angle overview of the UFO enigma. Although espousing the ET hypothesis, he does not let this viewpoint cloud his vision and exclude geographic and Fortean shreds of data that are challenging to the reader/researcher; he successfully penetrates the armor of 'think alike' mentation. He has a knack of presenting disparate material in a highly readable form that is highlighted by his free thinking questions and care in separating 'soft' from 'hard' data. He offers probing scholarship and leaves the reader more curious than ever about this most baffling phenomena that arches from the 'nuts and bolts' to the sometimes esoteric, recondite paranormal and, in many cases, the inextricable and inexplicable elements of the 'people part' of the equation: the always to be considered and never to be discounted parapsychological aspects. For all who wonder and desire to expand their vision about the origin, purpose, meaning, and understanding of the UFO problem, The Chinese Roswell by Hartwig Hausdorf is indispensable reading.

Robert C. Girard, ARCTURUS BOOKS Catalogue
Full of interesting topics, and of material little known to the West, this is an excellent, crackling good read.
Like his predecessor, Heinrich Harrer, who spent seven years in Tibet, Hartwig Hausdorf has ventured, virtually on foot, over many of the sacred places of the Far East. But his aim has been not to discover his own soul, but rather to uncover tell-tale traces of an Alien Mind which may have passed that way millennia ago, and may be passing by again. He has sought out the fabled, forbidden 1,000-foot White Pyramid of Xian. In so doing, he has stumbled upon the key to the ancient Chinese dream of material immortality, a dream perhaps inspired by Alien Mind, and a key hidden in the fabulous, mercury-filled tomb--chamber of the Emperor Shi Huangdi--a tomb-chamber the possible excavation of which the Chinese government has kept secret from the West. He has unearthed new facts about the mysterious stone disks of Bayan Kara Ula, which some believe tell the story of a forced alien landing 12,000 years ago. And he has discerned, in the prodigious mind-over-matter techniques of the Tibetans, the Chinese and the Japanese, the faintest whispers, still audible over the vast gulf of time, of an awesome encounter which may have taken place on the sacred peak of Mount Meru at the very beginning of man's time on earth.
