Middlebury College and the Monterey Institute now both have trial access to two collections of declassified US intelligence documents on a platform that is “in beta development” from Brill.
- Cold War Intelligence, 1945-1991 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.
- US Intelligence on the Middle East, 1945-2009 Since 1945, the U.S. intelligence community has had to cover a half-dozen major wars and several dozen smaller but equally bloody armed conflicts in the Middle East, as well as innumerable civil wars, border clashes, armed insurgencies, and terrorist attacks. This comprehensive document set sheds light on the U.S. intelligence community’s spying and analytic efforts in the Arab world, including the Middle East, the Near East, and North Africa. It covers the time period from the end of World War II to the present day, up until the 2002-2003 Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) assessments, the Global War on Terror, the Iraq War, and Iran’s nuclear program.
We’ll have trial access to these until November 3rd. Please let us know what you think – email email@example.com , your liaison at Middlebury, or to Ann Flower at MIIS.
