ProQuest Expands Digital National Security Archive on Japan-U.S. Relations

ProQuest is expanding its Digital National Security Archive with newly declassified files that provide researchers with fresh insights into the modern relationship between the U.S. and Japan. Japan and the United States: Diplomatic, Security, and Economic Relations, Part III, 1961-2000 continues a series that provides the first broad digital access to memoranda of conversation between U.S. presidents and their Japanese counterparts, as well as presidential decision documents, intelligence analyses, and inter-governmental communications central to U.S. foreign policy, intelligence and security issues. Published by ProQuest in collaboration with the National Security Archive (NSA), the Digital National Security Archive provides online access to the most significant declassified primary documents in key areas of U.S. foreign and military policy since 1945.

As in previous collections on this subject, Japan and the United States: Diplomatic, Security, and Economic Relations, Part III, 1961-2000 covers a broad spectrum of issues and events unique to this relationship. Important topics include negotiations over the return of Okinawa, military relations in the wake of détente and the opening to China, security challenges in the Korean Peninsula, trade disputes in the 1980s and 1990s, and the Asian economic crisis at the close of the 20th century.

This expertly curated collection is gathered from the major agencies concerned with the management of U.S.-Japan relations and will permit scholars to refer directly to primary documents of central importance in researching these events and issues. Among the highlights are policy reviews, internal assessments of various aspects of Japan’s policies, and intelligence reports. Memoranda of conversation and diplomatic cables are also included, providing an intimate view of the dynamics of the U.S.-Japan relationship.

The NSA is a research institute, library, and publisher of declassified documentation based at The George Washington University. Since 1985, the archive’s mission has been to expand public knowledge and debate over critical issues in U.S. foreign policy by identifying, making available (through the Freedom of Information Act), organizing, indexing, and disseminating the primary sources that make up the historical record.
