current basis the most significant published materials having to do
with the Soviet Union, its foreign policy, economic and social develop-
ment, 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 included and the periodical articles are selected
from about 200 of the most pertinent and scholarly journals currently
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
