Readex Announces Digital Edition of Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, 1941–1974

In 2009, Readex (, a division of NewsBank, Inc., will begin providing online access to Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports published between 1941 and 1974. To be full-text searchable for the first time, FBIS Daily Reports, 1941–1974 will offer online access to international news and broadcasts from around the world on topics ranging from the Axis alliance and colonialism in Africa to the new Islamic countries of the Middle East and the Vietnam War.

As the U.S.’s principal record of political and historical open source intelligence, FBIS Daily Reports offer researchers at all levels valuable insight into decades of turbulent international politics and world history. Many of these FBIS translations of foreign broadcasts and firsthand accounts may be all that remain from what vanished into the airways or onto the classified recording disks of various national intelligence services.

Scheduled for initial release in fall 2009, FBIS Daily Reports, 1941–1974 will serve as an essential complement to Readex’s FBIS Daily Reports, 1974–1996.
