Sometimes pop culture produces its best comedies by accident--witness the Hula-Hoop craze, roller disco, and now the alien abduction phenomenon. In this hilarious "exposť" David Jacobs reveals the secret agenda that compels aliens to abduct human men and women. Some of the best material is in his section on research methods, where he decries the use of hypnotism by other alien-abduction specialists, because it can produce false memories; he then goes on to explain that most of his data comes from hypnotically induced recollections. The stories he relates from the various abductees he has worked with are all titillatingly sexual, and Jacobs writes that this consistency proves not that people are prone to sexual fantasies, but that the aliens are using humans for their breeding program. Filled with delightful howlers of this sort, The Threat is a laugh riot from beginning to end. Toss out your Dave Barry books and move up to the real thing. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Jacobs knows that people think he's crazy. He is a bona fide historian at Temple University--and a leading UFO researcher. He has interviewed, mostly under hypnosis, hundreds of people who say they have been abducted by aliens, and he thinks he's figured out why they are here--and it's not Whitley Strieber's mystical, New Age vision of cosmic harmony. Rather, it is interspecies breeding, because the aliens cannot reproduce themselves. ``The aliens are conducting a widespread, systematic program... read more --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The world's foremost academic expert on UFOs and alien abductions provides the first evidence-based explanation of a mystery that has perplexed scientists for decades.
Based on more than 700 hypnotic-regression interviews with alien abductees and a Roper survey of 6,000 adults, The Threat reveals why the aliens are here and what they want, explains why their agenda has been kept secret, and exposes their frightening plans for earth and its inhabitants. In a direct, authoritative challenge to researchers who believe the abduction phenomenon is essentially benevolent and spiritually uplifting, Professor David M. Jacobs proves that there is a far more disturbing and potentially dangerous plan underway, with possible alien domination at its core.
In this remarkably well-researched and well-written book, Professor Jacob has added a new complexity and depth to our knowledge of the UFO and abduction phenomena. The secret alien agenda revealed here is ominous, but it must be confronted before it is too late.
Reviewer: A reader
This is part two by Jacobs on alien abduction and gets to the heart of the alien agenda. Jacobs has all the credentials and intellectual honesty required by non-believers; it is time to believe. After reading the first part, I do believe he takes too many of these accounts at face value and jumps to conclusions that other scientists would not make. However he is a very intelligent man with an interesting viewpoint. The treat is that aliens want planet earth and know how to take it, by infiltrating humanity with their own hybrids. Some believe, as Jacobs appears too, that a Breading Program has been taking place for decades and the level of alien hybrids is now indistinguishable from your neighbor next door, except he has full allegiance to the alien agenda. Jacobs includes many abduction accounts with new insights about the threat that no one wants to take seriously. For textbooks, I read Unconvential Flying Objects by Dr. Paul Hill and Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs. For the best fiction which includes inside information on the cover-up, the black technology, and government dirty tricks, I highly recommend Brad Steiger's new book, Alien Rapture.
Reviewer: A reader from USA
Out of all the theories that try to make sense and explain alien abductions (and UFOs in general), none is so complete, thorough, logical, and scholarly as Jacobs'.
In the beginning, he points out why the alien abduction phenomenon is clearly real and why it isn't true that the many abduction stories (all over the world) are simply made up, dreamed of, caused by hypnosis, or caused by psychological or other problems (and how they differ from false "repressed memories" which sometimes occurs under incompetent hypnosis). He later analyses the many stories and comes up with a rational theory that makes perfect sense. All the strange events and procedures the aliens perform during abductions as well as the secrecy of the phenomenon make perfect sense after you read this book.
Unlike others who view the abduction phenomenon in a spiritual or religious sense and automatically assume that aliens and abductions are benevolent and are here to help or better mankind or are here from a higher spiritual realm (he explains why people believe this and how it is incorrect), he thoroughly investigates and looks at the UFO and abduction phenomenon logically, rationally and scientifically. When you put all the pieces of the puzzle together, the abductions make sense and the aliens intentions become clear. Their intentions are not benevolent, in our best interests, or to help or better mankind. Far from it, they have a dangerous and malevolent plan underway. I agree with the reviewer who said that not only should people interested in the UFO and paranormal phenomenon read it but everyone should.
UFOS and the abduction phenomenon are real(for evidence for, and an overview of UFOs and aliens also read Alien Agenda) . There are just way too many stories performed by unbiased and competent hypnosis (Jacobs explains how the aliens prevent people from remembering it, at least under normal circumstances), all over the world, and sometimes even with physical evidence (not much-the aliens are very careful), such as implants, markings on the ground,strange medical evidence, body marks and bruises, persons missing for a period of time, etc.
After so many abduction accounts, you'd think it would be clear that these beings are not benevolent, that they aren't spiritual beings from another dimension, that they aren't kindly "space brothers", and that "new-ageish" theories such as that is simply the result of wishful thinking.
For those who say it's impossible to travel light-years from even the nearest star, well, it may be impossible for us to do it with our method of space travel , but that doesn't mean a much more technologically advanced civilization hasn't found a way to do it. Two or three centuries ago we thought it would be impossible to fly or go to the moon. I think this is the best book on alien abduction because it makes sense of it. The aliens have a reason for their secrecy, and it's not to protect us, but to hide their intentions. Read this book.
