"This collection of formerly secret records - including correspondence between John F. Kennedy, Nikita Krushchev, and Fidel Castro, as well as intelligence reports, minutes, and cables - provides a unique fly-on-the-wall view of the policy decisions and operations that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. The editors have provided a document-by-document account of the most important superpower confrontation of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET+-+79299301062902ocn028018123book19930.73South Africa and the United States : the declassified historySources+-+K6359301062221ocn156946853file20070.56The CAESAR, POLO & ESAU papers : Cold War era hard target analysis of Soviet and Chinese policy and decision making, 1953-1973SourcesRecords and correspondence"This collection of declassified analytic monographs and reference aids, designated within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Directorate of Intelligence (DI) as the CAESAR, ESAU, and POLO series, highlights the CIA's efforts from the 1950s through the mid-1970s to pursue in-depth research on Soviet and Chinese internal politics and Sino-Soviet relations. The documents reflect the views of seasoned analysts who had followed closely their special areas of research and whose views were shaped in often heated debate. Continuing public interest in the series, as reflected in numerous requests through Freedom of Information and Executive Order channels, led CIA's Office of Information Management Services (IMS) to conduct a search of Directorate of Intelligence record systems for documents in this series and then undertake a declassification review of all the documents we located. The 147 documents in this collection, amounting to over 11,000 pages of analysis, were written between 1953 and 1973. The collection includes a large number of newly declassified monographs as well as some studies that have been previously declassified and released to individual requesters.

Some 3,400 unique records relevant to the crisis, totalling approximately 17,500 pages, are reproduced. Much of the documentation focuses on U.S. decisionmaking during what Robert Kennedy called the "Thirteen Days" of the missile crisis--from McGeorge Bundy's October 16, 1962 briefing of President Kennedy on the discovery of Soviet missiles in Cuba to Nikita Khrushchev's October 28 decision to withdraw the weapons. The numerous intelligence reports, diplomatic cables, political analyses, military situation reports, and meeting minutes included in the set portray both the deliberative process and the execution of critical decisions made by the Kennedy administration during the crisis979ocn020790161book19890.96El Salvador the making of U.S. policy, 1977-1984SourcesThis set of documents focuses on United States policy toward El Salvador and events in El Salvador from the Carter Administration's formulation of a new Central American policy in January 1977 through the Salvadoran Presidential elections of May 1984 that brought Jos ̌Napolen̤ Duarte to power. Major events in the period include: the military coup of October 1979; the agrarian reform efforts launched in 1980 and 1981; significant labor and peasant protests followed by a growing number of guerilla actions by leftist organizations; a series of political slayings widely attributed to government affiliated forces including those of Archbishop Oscar Romero, the majority of the leadership of the Democratic Revolutionary Front (FDR), four American churchwomen, and three land reform proponents, of which two were American Institute for Free Labor Development consultants; the shift of U.S. policy brought about by the Reagan Administration; U.S. Congressional inquiries into El Salvadoran government human rights abuses, the investigations of the political slayings under American government pressure, the Constituent Assembly election of 1982; the promulgation of a new Constitution in December 1983795ocn024175385book19900.96National Security Archive (U.S.)The Iran-Contra affair the making of a scandal, 1983-1988Bibliography CatalogsCatalogsArchivesSourcesThis set of documents focuses on United States policy towards Iran and events in Iran during the period of January 20, 1977, to January 29, 1980. This coincides with the period which encompasses the beginning of the Carter administration's relationship with the Shah of Iran through the failure of efforts to formulate a new policy toward Iran, symbolized by the seizing of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the holding of its diplomatic personnel as hostages in late 1979. It covers the beginning of the popular protests and mass demonstrations that climaxed in the Iranian revolution of February 1979, a revolution which overthrew the pro-American monarch and established an Islamic Republic along the lines proposed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who deeply resented American influence. It also covers the efforts by the U.S. and the Provisional government led by Prime Minister Mehdi Bazargan to normalize relations, which were frustrated by continual challenges from Islamic fundamentalists through such revolutionary organizations as the Revolutionary Council, the revolutionary courts and the komitehs. It records in detail the U.S. reaction to the constitutional assembly, which pitted secular against religious forces in a three-month struggle to draft a new constitution and which eventually led to the formal establishment of a theocracy and the loss of Iran as the principal strategic "pillar" of U.S. interests in the Persian Gulf.

The archive includes more than 83,000 pages of primary source documents (and thousands more to come) related to the detention and interrogation of individuals by the United States, in connection with the conduct of hostilities in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as in the broader context of the "global war on terror." The dates range from 1949 to the present. With support from the Open Society Institute and the JEHT Foundation since 2006, the National Security Archive has undertaken to bring together all these materials in digital formats, organize and catalog them for maximum utility and access, and publish them online in multiple packages including a comprehensive searchable database. By combining released executive branch policy memoranda, legal documents from U.S. and foreign courts, and on-the-ground information about actual practices by the U.S. military and intelligence personnel, the Torture Archive presents a comprehensive view of the war on terrorism, its foundations and its implications. This initial launch of the Torture Archive includes the complete set of declassified Combatant Status Review Tribunal and Administrative Review Board files from the Pentagon, and thousands of documents resulting from FOIA litigation brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Archive and other plaintiffs. The Torture Archive will continue to add documents as they are released through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation or Executive discretion. Together with the documentary film, Torturing Democracy, and the companion resources posted for viewers of the film, the Torture Archive provides multiple pathways for multiple levels of users, ranging from the high school student seeking a single key torture memo, to the dissertation writer needing a complete reference database of primary sources. Visitors can view the interactive timeline, the full annotated transcript of the film, interview transcripts, and YouTube excerpts, as well as the complete streaming video of the 90-minute film.

Marcos. The bulk of the collection is composed of documents produced between the fall of 1965, when Mr. Marcos ran successfully for his first term as president of the Philippines, and the evening hours of February 25, 1986, when Marcos, his wife Imelda, and their 55-member entourage hurriedly fled the grounds of the presidential palace aboard three U.S. Air Force helicopters en route to exile in Hawaii. Major events in the period include the creation--with the covert support of the Johnson Administration--of a Philippine civic action group to support the U.S. war effort in Vietnam; state visits to the United States by President and Mrs. Marcos in 1966 and 1982; the imposition of martial law in September 1972; the assassination of opposition leader Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. in August 1983 and the subsequent reshaping of U.S. policy toward the Philippines; the emergence of so-called "crony capitalism" during the 1970s; visits to the Philippines by Presidents Johnson, Nixon and Ford in 1966, 1969 and 1975, respectively; the rise of Communist and Muslim insurgencies during the 1970s and 1980s; the emergence following the imposition of martial law of a small, albeit vocal and influential, opposition movement in the United States; and a series of disputed elections culminating in the 1986 "snap" presidential election, which Mr. Marcos attempted to steal from the opposition but which, instead, led to his political demise41ocn022289620mix19771.00National Security Archive (U.S.)Iran, the making ot U.S. policyArchivesSources21ocn036572645book0.96National Security Archive (U.S.)El Salvador war, peace, and human rights, 1980-1994HistoryArchivesSources[This is] ... the National Security Archive's second set of declassified U.S. records concerning El Salvador ... the first publication, El Salvador, the making of U.S. policy, 1977-1984 was assembled with documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act ... the vast majority of the documents in the current collection was declassified by executive order in 1993 and 1994"--Guide, p. 311ocn023855912mix19730.95National Security Archive (U.S.)Afghanistan the making of U.S. policy, 1973-1990HistoryArchivesSourcesThe Afghanistan document collection provides a contemporary record of many of the political and military developments that caused an isolated, Third World country situated at the rugged cross-roads of Asia to become the battleground for the bloodiest and costliest superpower proxy war of the 1980s.
