Foreign Relations of the United States
“The Foreign Relations of the United States series presents the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions and significant diplomatic activity. The series, which is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian, began in 1861 and now comprises more than 350 individual volumes. The volumes published over the last two decades increasingly contain declassified records from all the foreign affairs agencies.
"Foreign Relations volumes contain documents from Presidential libraries, Departments of State and Defense, National Security Council, Central Intelligence Agency, Agency for International Development, and other foreign affairs agencies as well as the private papers of individuals involved in formulating U.S. foreign policy. In general, the editors choose documentation that illuminates policy formulation and major aspects and repercussions of its execution. Volumes published over the past few years have expanded the scope of the series in two important ways: first by including documents from a wider range of government agencies, particularly those involved with intelligence activity and covert actions, and second by including transcripts prepared from Presidential tape recordings.”
Early volumes in the series are arranged by region or special topic within chronological periods and each volume has an index. Since 1952, volumes have been organized chronologically according to Presidential administration and then further divided by geography and topic. 25 volumes cover the Kennedy administration (1961-1963), 34 cover the Johnson administration (1964-1968), 54 cover the Nixon and Ford administrations (1969-1976) and 6 cover the Carter administration (1977-1980).
For a list of published volumes, consult Foreign Relations Volumes: 1861 to Date.
Selected volumes of The Foreign Relations Series from the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations are available on the web site of the Office of the Historian.
Selected volumes from1861-1960 are available from the University of Wisconsin-Madison web site
