Description

This collection of 2,360 formerly classified U.S. government documents (most of them classified Top Secret or higher) provides readers for the first time with the declassified documentary record about the successes and failures of the U.S. intelligence community in its efforts to spy on the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Documents included comprise 21,700 pages and were obtained from archival sources as well as through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, submitted to more than two dozen U.S. government agencies. A substantial portion of these documents have been released only since January 2012.

More than half of the documents were obtained from various record groups held by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Many of the other documents were obtained from the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan Presidential Libraries. The collection also includes a series of documents on joint U.S.-British intelligence operations, obtained from the National Archives of the United Kingdom. Additional sources include the CIA's CREST database, the Hoover Institution Archives, the Library of Congress, the George C. Marshall Research Library, and the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial Library.
