On trial: U.S. Intelligence on Asia, 1945-1991

Our latest trial is to U.S. Intelligence on Asia, 1945-1991. This collection provides students and researchers with the declassified documentary record about the successes and failures of the U.S. intelligence community in the Far East during the Cold War.

Particular emphasis is given to America’s principal antagonists in Asia during the Cold War era: the People’s Republic of China, North Korea and North Vietnam. However, countries such as Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia are covered as well.

The background paper ‘Trying to penetrate the bamboo curtain’ by Matthew M. Aid gives futher information about the collection.

The trial runs until 6 September 2017. Do let us know what you think. Please send your feedback to collections@nottingham.ac.uk.
