Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, 1941-1996 [ressources]

FBISannexes[ndlr] Un instrument de travail incontournable pour la recherche sur la période contemporaine.

The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Report has been the United States’ principal historical record of political open source intelligence for more than half a century. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record, transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services, and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Providing a wealth of information from all countries outside of the U.S.—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, the FBIS Daily Reports are an indispensable source for insights into decades of turbulent world history.


Available in a single, complete online collection

FBIS Daily Reports, 1941-1996 constitutes a one-of-a-kind archive of transcripts of foreign broadcasts and news that provides fascinating insight into the second half of the 20th century. Many of these materials are firsthand reports of events as they occurred. Digitized from original paper copy and high-quality microfilm, this definitive online collection features full-text transcripts from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, China, Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the Soviet Union. Fully searchable for the first time, this unique digital collection features individual bibliographic records for each report and highlighted events to assist researchers.

Translated materials form a distinctive English-language resource 

Without translations, researchers must limit their research projects to primary sources in languages they understand or rely entirely on secondary sources. Translated as needed, these English-language materials—the vast majority of which originated in other languages—constitute a vital resource for students of international and area studies, political science and world history.
