But Hopkins could not have told the stories of those victims without first having discovered the one experience common to all who report alien encounters — the phenomenon known as “missing time. Yet, under hypnosis, many abductees were able to recall in vivid, convincing detail, the harrowing intrudwrs that left mysterious scars on their bodies, the eerie interiors of UFOs where they were held captive, and the astonishing faces of their alien hosts.
The stories of seven victims of these otherworldly intruders are told here — in detail at once dispassionate and intrhders, fully supported by scientific documentation.

Intruders: The Incredible Visitations at Copley Woods
Jun 30, Daniel rated it it was amazing. Missing Time is arguably the most important book on alien abductions ever written. While other accounts such as The Interrupted Journey detailing the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill and Raymond Fowler’s The Andreasson Affair had previously been published, this book, published inwas the first to look for patterns and consistencies across a spectrum of different abductee reports.
While Missing Time now seems almost quaint and reserved in its observations and conclusions, it was in Missing Hopknis is arguably the most important book on alien abductions ever ontruders. While Missing Time now seems almost quaint and reserved in its observations and conclusions, it was incredibly bold for its time. Budd Hopkins is truly one of the preeminent men in the field of UFOlogy today, and his earnest attempts at objectivity and scientific problem solving have long provided a blueprint for serious investigators working to discover the truth about the almost unbelievable phenomenon of alien abduction.
As one might naturally wonder how a very successful artist came to be an authority on a subject of this sort, Hopkins begins by giving you the background of his life and the sequence of events which led to his becoming a leading researcher in ho;kins field of alien abduction. Having established his own credentials of a sort, he then proceeds to describe seven abduction stories that he has investigated, augmenting the narrative with small bits of information from cases still under study at the time of writing.
Comparing and contrasting these individual accounts, Hopkins draws several reasonable conclusions and then wraps the book up with his own theories and ideas intrudders the truth of inhruders serious matter. There are several fascinating accounts presented in these pages, with most of the imparted information originating in hypnotic regression sessions.
Hopkins does a commendable job of supporting the legitimate applicability of this tool in breaking the barrier of silence often built around the minds of alien abductees. All the while, he is careful to hold off any speculation of his own until the concluding chapter.
Gudd seven accounts detailed in this book are something of an uneven bunch. Several individuals essentially relived their abductions, communicating their complex emotions and observations along each step of the way. One wove in and out between reporting the details of her childhood experiences and analyzing them from her now adult station in life. One in particular was, I believe, a terrible witness who somewhat blunts the force of this book; this individual proved exasperating in what he would and would not describe, paused interminably over and over again during inttuders sessions, and kept reporting the ideas that came to his mind as if they intguders imaginative guesses as much as actual memories.
Hopkins does do a good job of bringing out consistencies among these sometimes disparate accounts, and it is that identified consistency that convinced Hopkins of the reality of a phenomenon many individuals dismiss out of hand.
A Critique of Budd Hopkins’ Case of the UFO Abduction of Linda Napolitano
The reader of today may be struck by the differences between these accounts and more modern abductee revelations. One of Hopkins’ earliest theories was that individuals were lured to a certain place or found themselves suddenly pulled to the side of the road while driving at night.
Implants are barely mentioned until the very end, yet now the prevalence of possibly physical evidence in the form of tiny implants is a matter of great importance. The possibility of alien-human hybridization projects is mentioned only briefly. One has to remember that the research featured in Missing Time was pioneer work among a rather small sample of abductees; it did more to raise questions and encourage further research into this topic than it did to answer incredibly puzzling questions.
There are really two very important ideas to take away from this book: Much more importantly, however, is Hopkins’ assertion that the scope of this phenomenon hhopkins well be larger than previously thought. The daunting implication is that untold thousands of men and women may have been inturders without ever having realized it.
Oct 26, Troy Espe rated it really liked it. I didn’t pee my pants in terror the way I did while reading Communion: However, this book provides convincing testimony about alien abductions. Bud particularly appreciated the way author Budd Hopkins analyzed the phenomenon.
He draws parallels between alien abductions and human study of wildlife. In both cases, abductors capture, measure, tag, and then release their subjects back into the wild — only to be recaptured and measured again at later dates.
Jan 24, Robin Sperry rated it it was ok. It’s well written but the stories are so far out of the realm of what can be considered plausible that intrhders takes away from the overall read.
It seemed to me the author is intruers making up the individual stories or is, sadly, feeding the hallucinations of some very disturbed people. Jul 17, Weathervane rated it really liked it Shelves: The mystery becomes ever-more engrossing.
Say what you will about the validity of hypnosis as a means for retrieving memories, but there are accounts in this book that are corroborated by multiple witnesses. Consider the man who saw little men march out of a UFO and take dirt samples. Numerous other people saw the same ship, at the same time, in the same place; furthermore, no hypnosis was used in the investigation.
These are real people with real recollections. These are strange days we live in. The alien abduction phenomenon is one of the greatest mysteries of our time; and, as Hopkins points out, if aliens are real, their visitations are escalating in intensity and temerity. The next thirty years may be the strangest yet.
Having read several older books about psychics such as Flournoy’s From India to the Planet Mars and Jung’s Psychology of So-called Occult Phenomena and about past-life recovery such as Search for Bridey Murphy, I note similarities between the extraordinary accounts of persons operating under hypnosis–similarities which cause me to be profoundly suspicious of all uncorroborated data obtained by such means.
Hopkins does not share this suspicion.
