Index of Declassified Articles

The Studies in Intelligence articles and book reviews cited in these indexes were declassified and are now available for review and reproduction at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland. The Center for the Study of Intelligence continues to work on declassifying other once highly sensitive intelligence literature. Our review is done in consultation with appropriate components of the Intelligence Community.

Readers of many of the declassified articles will discover that some excisions have been made to protect important intelligence sources and methods. But the redactions do not reduce the substantive value of this large and diverse collection. In almost all instances, the judgments, and full meaning of the articles and book reviews have been undiminished.
