Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) A Description of Versions Held by the MSU Libraries

FRUS 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 published over the last two decades increasingly contain declassified records from all the foreign affairs agencies. As of 2009, the set covers up to the Nixon/Ford administrations (1973/76).
