U.S. Department of State

Diplomacy in Action


The Foreign Relations of the United States series presents the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions and significant diplomatic activity. The series, which is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian, began in 1861 and now comprises more than 350 individual volumes.

The volumes on the Soviet Union document U.S.-Soviet relations worldwide; reflect the global nature of the Cold War; and provide a core history of the Cold War for this period, as seen through the prism of U.S.-Soviet global relations.
