The Cuban missile crisis, 1962 : a National Security Archive documents reader by Laurence Chang( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 1,052 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."--Jacket

Torturing democracy( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the inside story of how the U.S. government adopted torture as official policy in the aftermath of 9/11. [The film] examines how coercive interrogation methods were used by the CIA and then in military interrogations at Guantanamo Bay and Iraq. It carefully presents evidence that the Bush administration promoted these methods and developed legal justification for the practice - and so lays to rest the 'rotten apple' defense for abusive interrogation at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere"--Container

The Nicaragua document collection provides an unparalleled contemporary record of the diplomatic, political, paramilitary and economic developments which turned the small Central American nation of Nicaragua into the most controversial U.S. foreign policy issue of the 1980s. The collection consists of 3,248 cataloged primary source documents totaling approximately 17,500 pages. The documentation covers U.S. policy toward the Nicaraguan revolution, starting with the January 1978 assassination of newspaper publisher Pedro Joaqun̕ Chamorro, an event which sparked the insurrection that culminated in the Sandinista overthrow of the Somoza family dynasty 18 months later, and ending with the Sandinista government's electoral defeat by the U.S.-backed UNO coalition of Violeta Chamorro on February 25, 1990. The collection provides records on all aspects of U.S.-Nicaraguan relations during those 12 years, including: U.S. efforts to orchestrate the end of the Somoza regime and prevent a Sandinista victory, the CIA's Contra war, the congressional debate over aid to the Contras, U.S. economic policy toward Nicaragua and U.S. policy toward the 1990 elections

10 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Philippines document collection provides a documentary record of U.S. policy toward that country during the 20-year rule of Ferdinand E. 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 demise

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 0 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
