This is a small batch of recent addtions ranging from books acquired on recent Texas road trips. One trip through Alpine to Marfa to look for the Marfa Mystery lights and one trip to a bigfoot conference in Northeast Texas. A good bookstore in Long View, Texas was on the way to the 4th Annual Texas Bigfoot Research Conference in Jefferson, Texas. The books from the Long View store are mostly Investigative Parapolitical Science books and Metaphysical titles. At the conference several Cryptozoology books, magazines and DVDs were acquired. (Those are to be found in their respective media databases.)
Also included in this batch of acquisitions are donations from new Anomaly Archives members, as well as gifts from family and friends. At least a couple of the donations are from a huge donation from Mike Hanson. More on that donation as we catalog the hundreds of new books.

From Book News, Inc. A psychologist offers down-to-earth explanations for various kinds of “supernatural” experiences. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or. Midwest Book Review An upstate New York woman was gripped one day by the horrifying childhood memory that her father had involved her in satanic rituals. Jennifer recalled a time when she was four and was forced to witness animal sacrifices and the torture of infants. She even remembered being placed in a coffin with live snakes during these “devil parties”. Thinking of those horrors as an adult, Jennifer was astounded that years ago no one in her family seemed aware she was being abused. Similarly bizarre tales of alien abductions, satanic possessions, channeling of spirits, and memories of past lives are not only reported, but also promoted in the media each day. But are these “memories” reliable, and should they be used as credible evidence in courts?

Thieves in High Places: They’ve Stolen Our Country–And It’s Time to Take It Back
Category: Entertainment : Humor : Business
Amazon.com Author, populist, and radio commentator Jim Hightower is nothing if not direct. In Thieves in High Places, Hightower lambastes the current American power structure and exhorts his readers to fight against it. Hightower’s indignation runs deep in this “us versus them” expos? of corporate malfeasance, governmental abuse, the militarization of American society, and the Bush administration’s empire building. In the first part of the book, Hightower illustrates how the Bush administration and Congress work with major corporations (including our nation’s vast media conglomerates) to add to their obscene wealth at the expense of America’s working class, our environment, and (most lamentably) our rights and liberties. “The elites have pulled off a slow-motion coup, radically wrenching America’s power balance from a people’s democracy to Kleptocrat Nation.” Hightower defines “Kleptocrat Nation” as “a body of people ruled by thieves…a government characterized by the practice of transferring money and power from the many to the few…[and] a ruling class of moneyed elites that usurps liberty, justice, sovereignty, and other, democratic rights from the people.” His catalogue of corporate greed and governmental complicity is breathtaking in scope, and though he admits that the fusion of business and government is not new, he persuasively states that “never have so few done so much for so few.” Unfortunately, Hightower’s serious message is delivered in such a “down home” style, it may lose its impact on the more brainy among us. Also, one wishes there were more documentation for the copious examples and facts in the book. Still, Hightower’s call to action is sincere, and his descriptions of the triumphs of average people over corporate power might give some fledgling activists some hope. Thieves in High Places urges Americans to reclaim control of our government–Hightower thinks we can with community organization and grass-roots movements. However, judging from his description of the current power structure, we are going to need all the help we can get. — Silvana Tropea Product Description: America listens to Jim Hightower. More than eighty thousand people subscribe to The Hightower Lowdown Newsletter while his radio show is aired on more than sixty public and commercial radio stations. In They’ve Stolen Our Country and It’s Time To Take It Back, he takes on the Bushites, the Wobblycrats, and the corporate Kleptocrats, digging up behind-the-scenes dirt that the corporate media overlooks-like BushCo’s “Friday Night Massacres,” what’s happened to our food, and the Bush plan for empire. But the book also offers grassroots solutions, drawing on Hightower’s Rolling Thunder Down-Home Democracy Tour, a traveling festival of rebellion against every tentacle of the corporate-politico power grab. At kitchen tables all over America, Hightower has tapped into the thriving activist networks that are our country’s grassroots muscle, and his book tells their uplifting stories of retaking control of their communities. This is the real America that the rest of the world doesn’t get to see. With his unique blend of wit and outrage, Jim Hightower “lights a prairie fire”-and it’s just the spark that his growing national audience craves.

Shoot-Down: Flight 007 and the American Connection
From Publishers Weekly When Korean Airlines flight 007 was shot down by a Soviet fighter in 1983, many questions and contradictions emerged that still haven’t been answered. Johnson’s absorbing study explores the complex affair from various angles and provides a broad context, including an assessment of the strategic balance in Northeast Asia, the use of civilian airlines for espionage and the way international crises are handled by the Reagan administration. Presented here are the four major theories of what happened and why: that Flight 007 strayed off course by accident; that the pilot tried to take a shortcut to save fuel; that the Soviets lured the plane off course through electronic interference with navigational equipment; and that 007 was, as the Soviets have claimed, on a surveillance mission. In the book’s piece de resistance, Johnson reruns the sequence of events surrounding the flight as if hypothesis four were true, and most readers will likely agree that it is the only one that makes sense. Johnson is a Fellow in Politics at Oxford. Photos. 50,000 first printing. (June Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Johnson, an Oxford political scientist, reviews publicly available information on the 1983 Soviet downing of Korean Air Lines Flight 007, and critically evaluates hypotheses put forward to explain the many mysteries still surrounding the tragedy. While acknowledging that the evidence remains incomplete, he concludes that KAL 007 was most likely on a U.S.-directed intelligence mission designed to reveal Soviet air defense radarsa finding similar to that of Alexander Dallin’s Black Box ( LJ 5/1/85) and at odds with Richard Rohmer’s Massacre 747 (Paperjacks, 1984). Readers will find more detail on many points than in earlier analyses as well as an accusation of Reagan Administration dishonesty on the matter. A readable and useful contribution to the debate.

Report From Iron Mountain: On the Possibility and Desirability of Peace
Category: Health, Mind & Body : Personal Health : Stress : Mind-Body Connection
NEXUS Magazine “…a well-flowing account with fascinating case studies and asides.” Product Description: In 1966, a writer asked FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for some information about UFOs. Hoover replied that “the investigation of unidentified flying objects is not, and never has been, a matter within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI.” Hoover lied. The information revealed in this book (for the first time anywhere) is nothing less than shocking. In this amazing work of scholarship and research, Dr. Maccabee reveals the lies and deceit, the foolishness and the egos that have prevented you from having this simple truth. It shows that throughout the contradictions, lies and misrepresentations put forth by the government, they have known the truth: something or someone is out there. Now, you can follow this previously unpublished revelation of real government secrets.

Germs : Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War
Category: History : Military : Weapons & Warfare : Biological & Chemical
Amazon.com Three reporters from The New York Times survey the recent history of biological weapons and sound an alarm about the coming threat of the “poor man’s hydrogen bomb.” Germs begins ominously enough, recounting the chilling attack by the followers of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh in 1984 on the Dalles, Oregon–no one died, but nearly 1,000 were infected with a strain of salmonella that the cult had legally obtained, then cultured and distributed. While the U.S. maintained an active “bugs and gas” program in the ’50s and early ’60s, bio-weapons were effectively pulled off this country’s agenda in 1972 when countries around the world, led by the United States, forswore development of such weapons at the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The issue reemerged in the early ’90s thanks to Saddam Hussein and revelations of the clandestine and massive buildup of bio-weapons in remote corners of the Soviet Union. The book’s description of the Soviet program is horrific. At its peak the program employed thousands of scientists, developing bioengineered pathogens as well as producing hundreds of tons of plague, anthrax, and smallpox annually. The authors conclude that while a biological attack against the United States is not necessarily inevitable, the danger of bio-weapons is too real to be ignored. Well-researched and documented, this book will not disappoint readers looking for a reliable and sober resource on the topic. –Harry C. Edwards Product Description: Deadly germs sprayed in shopping malls, bomb-lets spewing anthrax spores over battlefields, tiny vials of plague scattered in Times Square — these are the poor man’s hydrogen bombs, hideous weapons of mass destruction that can be made in a simple laboratory. In this groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, Judith Miller, Stephen Engelberg, and William Broad of The New York Times uncover the truth about biological weapons and show why bio-warfare and bio-terrorism are fast becoming our worst national nightmare. Among the startling revelations in Germs: How the CIA secretly built and tested a model of a Soviet-designed germ bomb, alarming some officials who felt the work pushed to the limits of what is permitted by the global treaty banning germ arms. How the Pentagon embarked on a secret effort to make a superbug. Details about the Soviet Union’s massive hidden program to produce biological weapons, including new charges that germs were tested on humans. How Moscow’s scientists made an untraceable germ that instructs the body to destroy itself. The Pentagon’s chaotic efforts to improvise defenses against Iraq’s biological weapons during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. How a religious cult in Oregon in the 1980s sickened hundreds of Americans in a bio-terrorism attack that the government played down to avoid panic and copycat strikes. Plans by the U.S. military in the 1960s to attack Cuba with germ weapons. Germs also shows how a small group of scientists and senior officials persuaded President Bill Clinton to launch a controversial multibillion-dollar program to detect a germ attack on U.S. soil and to aid its victims — a program that, so far, is struggling to provide real protection. Based on hundreds of interviews with scientists and senior officials, including President Clinton, as well as on recently declassified documents and on-site reporting from the former Soviet Union’s sinister bio-weapons labs, Germs shows us bio-warriors past and present at work at their trade. There is the American scientist who devoted his professional life to perfecting biological weapons, and the Nobel laureate who helped pioneer the new biology of genetically modified germs and is now trying to stop its misuse. We meet former Soviet scientists who made enough plague, smallpox, and anthrax to kill everyone on Earth and whose expertise is now in great demand by terrorists, rogue states, and legitimate research labs alike. A frightening and unforgettable narrative of cutting-edge science and spycraft, Germs shows

The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis : With Excerpts from an Essay on Watergate
From School Library Journal YA– In this adaptation of the script of a 1987 public television telecast, Moyers develops a carefully articulated argument against the abuses of executive power associated with the Iran-Contra affair and the Watergate break-in. He uses a variety of expert and man-in-the-street interviews to drive home the importance of an open, public discussion of issues and of an adherence to constitutional principles and prescribed rules of conduct by elected officials in a democracy. Throughout this book, Moyers traces the historical development of government covert operations and the erosion of democratic principles associated with covert action. Students deserve access to this well-reasoned polemic against governmental secrecy in a representative democracy. Moyers leaves readers not only with the information that Oliver North and others committed indictable offenses, but also engaged in activities that undermine the fabric of our government. – Tom Irwin, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, Tex. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. Product Description: Based on an acclaimed PBS documentary, The Secret Government analyzes the threats to constitutional government posed by an illegitimate network of spies, profiteers, mercenaries, ex-generals and “superpatriots” who have tried, at various times, to take foreign policy into their own hands.
The ultimate in the uncanny. An amazing but true collection of the weirdest people, animals, events, crimes, customs, weather, and mysteries. These are just a few of the hundreds of incredible yet totally authenticated stories of startlingly unusual people, eerie phenomena, and extraordinary events collected by a world-famous scholar of the strange and offered to you in a volume that will challenge your skepticism and shatter your disbelief.
