The fortnightly Soviet Bibliography is an attempt to list on a
current basis the most significant published materials having to do with
the Soviet Union, its foreign policy, economic and social development,
and its impact upon the satellite countries and the world in general.
It is compiled by the Division of Library and Reference Services and is
based primarily on materials available in the central collection of the
Department of State but also including publications in other libraries
of the Washington area. Only materials in the English language are in-
cluded and the periodical articles are selected from about 50 of the
most pertinent and scholarly journals currently published.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the bibliography lists
only a fraction of the pertinent materials in the Department's collec-
tion. Requests for supplementary and additional materials are always
The Division of Library and Reference Services is prepared to
