9780722538555: Crop Circles: The greatest mystery of modern times

A fasinating insight into the phenomena that has been baffling scientists throughout the world.

Crop Circles first appeared in the 17th century and have been increasing in both size and complexity particularly in the last part of this century. They are now appearing all over the world and on ice as well as in corn fields. Lucy Pringle, a leading World authority on the subject, has been studying this phenomena over the last decade and has assiduously photographed each new circle. She has also studied the different impact that the circles have had on the people that have visited them and the effect on animals and machinery in the local area. For many years people have been asking her to turn this research into a book, which she has now done.

Strangely, many people and much of the world media, are happy to believe that the circles have been produced by a skillful team of hoaxers or even hedgehogs. But when you examine the circles themselves, the scale, geometric precision and quality of the corn, make the idea of a human team of hoaxers a little hard for the rational mind to accept. Increasing numbers of scientists are becoming intrigued by the nature of the phenomena. Yet in general , the public at large seems indifferent to these extraordinary symbols that appear across our landscape. Will future generations look back at us with amazement, wondering why we failed to respond to these messages?
