Vintage Book: The Flying Saucer Conspiracy, by Major Donald Keyhoe, 2nd Edition, 1955

According to Google Books, the following was from the book jacket of one of the editions.

“In 1953, when Major Donald E. Keyhoe wrote Flying saucers from outer space, he hoped that the government’s information on mysterious flying objects would soon be made public. Instead, by a curious reversal of policy, official secrecy was increased. How this secrecy is enforced — the methods by which startling new developments are concealed — is the subject of The flying saucer conspiracy. Since 1953, saucer reports have multiplied; thousands of sightings have been confirmed by veteran pilots, radarman, and trained ground observers. Government investigation has been intensified; prominent engineers and scientists have been brought in to help Air Force Intelligence evaluate the indisputable facts. Yet the Air Force has refused to release a single official report concerning flying-saucer encounters. Major Keyhoe believes that this policy of censorship is sponsored by only a few individuals: men whose motive is to protect the public from possible hysteria. But he finds this censorship inimical to the democratic way of life: man has a chance to act wisely only if informed of all the facts”
