Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) is a collection of English-language transcriptions of media content from around the world collected by the United States' intelligence community. This collection provides an international perspective on world events.
FBIS Daily Reports, 1974-1996 is comprised of EIGHT separate regional Daily Reports whose mnemonic abbreviations and coverage include the Middle East and [North] Africa, 1974-1987; Near East and South Asia, 1987-1996; South Asia, 1980-1987; Sub-Saharan Africa, 1974-1980 and, 1987-1996; China, 1974-1996; Asia and the Pacific, 1974-1987; East Asia, 1987-1996; Latin America, 1974-1996; Eastern Europe, 1974-1996; Soviet Union/Central Eurasia, 1974-1996; Western Europe, 1974-1996. The FBIS Daily Reports included in this collection were published from April 1974 through September 1996.
FBIS Daily Reports, 1941-1974 consist of a SINGLE cumulative or collective Daily Report publication, latterly called "the White Book," that was issued five days a week with but a few exceptions. Throughout its coverage from World War II to the Cold War the Daily Report was internally subdivided into an approximation of the later regional coverage. For example, in the early 1960s there is in each Daily Report 4 sections, each with its separate internally differentiated collation. The sets of Daily Reports together constitute an indispensable English language source for insights into turbulent decades of world history whose effects are often still being felt today.
