It is remarkable that there exists no comprehensive documentary survey of the relations between the superpowers of the twentieth century in any language. Such document collections as exist are topic-oriented and fragmentary.

SOVAMDOCS has the purpose of righting this very unfortunate situation. Volumes are organized by time periods and by topics within these periods. About twelve volumes.
Each volume contains an introduction, headnotes, annotation, subject, name, place, institution indexes. $80 by subscription / $100 non-subscription.

Volume 1 Intervention, Famine Relief, International Affairs, 1917-1933 150 documents, xliii, 426 pages. 1993. Contents of Volume 1
Volume 2 Propaganda, Economic Affairs, Recognition 1917-1933 147 documents, xxxii, 499 pages. 1995. Contents of Volume 2
Volume 3 Diplomatic Relations, Economic Relations, P ropaganda, International Affairs, Neutrality, 1933-1941. 174 documents. xxix, 399 pages. 1998. Contents of Volume 3

What the Critics Say

  • "...this first volume is thoughtfully prepared, a significant aid to the profession and portends the coming of an exceptional series."-Slavic Review
  • "I find the book very useful...; The selections are well made and the brief introductory statements before the documents are most informative."-Adam B. Ulam, Harvard University
