The Cuban missile crisis, 1962 : a National Security Archive documents reader by Laurence Chang ( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thirty-six years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, these declassified documents stand as testament to just how dangerously close the world came to nuclear destruction in 1962, and challenge the official history of the event as a model of crisis management." "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

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The CAESAR, POLO & ESAU papers : Cold War era hard target analysis of Soviet and Chinese policy and decision making, 1953-1973 ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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. The continuing sensitivity of some documents in the series required that they be withheld from declassification

Presents an integrated, comprehensive record of U.S. decisionmaking during the most dangerous U.S.-Soviet confrontation in the nuclear era. 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 crisis
El Salvador the making of U.S. policy, 1977-1984 ( Book )
9 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 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 1983
The Iran-Contra affair the making of a scandal, 1983-1988 by National Security Archive (U.S.) ( Book )
5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 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 onset of the hostage crisis marked the demise of the Provisional Government and of official U.S. efforts to come to terms with revolutionary Iran, which was now openly hostile to the U.S

The torture archive ( )
in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The goal of the archive is to become the online institutional memory for essential evidence on torture in U.S. policy. ... 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. Users can search the full database of documents by title, date, organization or keywords."--Home page of the Torture archive
