Oct 01, 2010

ProQuest has digitized a National Security Archive collection on U.S.-Korean relations, expanding the Digital National Security Archives (DNSA) database series. Available for purchase now, The United States and the Two Koreas: 1969-2000 covers diplomatic, security, and economic relations between the United States and its ally, South Korea, as well as challenges to the U.S. posed by North Korea.

Spanning events dating from the Nixon administration's response to the April 15, 1969 downing of a U.S. reconnaissance plane by North Korea to efforts during the Clinton years to deter Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions, The United States and the Two Koreas enables researchers to easily search and access these documents via libraries.

The 34th collection in DNSA, The United States and the Two Koreas contains more than 1,500 records released by the State Department, the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency, and other agencies, as well as historical material compiled through research at the National Archives and the presidential libraries.
