Subject(s): Genre/Form: Online resources: Summary: As the United States' principal historical record of political open source intelligence for more than half a century, the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Report is an indispensable source for insights into decades of turbulent world history. 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. Accordingly, it provides a wealth of information from all countries outside of the U.S.—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. 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. The database has three parts: FBIS Daily Reports 1941-1974, FBIS Daily Reports 1974-1996, Part 1: Middle East, Africa, Near East and South Asia (MEA, NES), Part 2: Sub-Saharan Africa & South Asia (SSA, SAF, AFR, SAS), Part 3: China (CHI), Part 4: Asia, Pacific and East Asia (APA, EAS), Part 5: Latin America (LAT, LAM), Part 6: Eastern Europe (EEU), Part 7: Soviet Union and Central Eurasia (SOV), Part 8: Western Europe (WEU). FBIS Daily Reports Annexes 1974-1996: The reports, offered as images, are searchable in full text and can be downloaded in PDF format. It is helpful to narrow down large amounts of hits by limiting the search to selected continents, countries or regions, the genre such as text, excerpt or summary, to publication series titles, or even by time. In addition, it is possible to search for specific historical events such as the “Berlin Blockade”.Holdings: KIT-Bibliothek, Zugriff nur im Netz des KIT, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie; Fachbibliothek HKA, Zugriff nur im Netz der HKA; Fachbibliothek DHBW-KA, Zugriff nur im Netz der DHBWPPN: PPN: 1733776060ZDB ID: ZDB-ID: 3038729-2Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-1-FBIS
