Foreign Relations of the US

Collected by: Stanford University, Social Sciences Resource Group

Archived since: May, 2009

Description:

The Foreign Relations of the United States series is the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions that have been declassified and edited for publication. The series is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian and printed volumes are available from the Government Printing Office.

FRUS begins with the administration of Abraham Lincoln in 1861. There are two cumulative indexes covering 1861-1899 and 1900-1918. The organization of FRUS is generally chronological, but the dates of the volumes do not necessarily reflect the dates of documentary history. For example, the volumes for 1900-1918 do not include the records dealing with World War I or the Russian Revolution. Each volume has a subject and author index. There is also typically a table of sources and abbreviations at the beginning of each volume. We're extremely interested -- for purely academic reasons -- in how this collection is being used and would be grateful if users would share that information with us. Please email James Jacobs, Government Information Librarian, at jrjacobs AT stanford DOT edu. User privacy is extremely important so of course any stories and personal information will be kept strictly confidential.
