How could anyone believe he or she was abducted by aliens? Or want to believe it? To answer these questions, psychologist Susan Clancy interviewed and evaluated "abductees" - old and young, male and female, religious and agnostic. She listened closely to their stories - how they struggled to explain their remembered experience, how abduction seemed plausible, and how, having suspected abduction, they began to recollect it, aided by suggestion and hypnosis. This book is not only a subtle exploration of the workings of memory, but a sensitive inquiry into the nature of belief.
