A component of the Archives Direct suite of collections sourced from the National Archives--the UK government's official archive, Foreign Office Files for Japan, 1919-1952 makes available extensive coverage of British Foreign Office files dealing with Japan between the years 1919 and 1952. The collection is divided into three modules: Japan and Great Power Status, 1919-1930; Japanese Imperialism and the War in the Pacific, 1931-1945; and Occupation of Japan, 1946-1952.
Incorporating the Taishō to the Shōwa periods, these papers shed light on Anglo-Japanese ties in a time of shifting alliances. Documenting Japan’s journey to modernity, the files discuss a period in which the country took on an increasingly bold imperialist agenda.
Consisting of diplomatic dispatches, correspondence, maps, summaries of events and diverse other material, this collection covers British concerns over colonial-held territory in the Far East, as well as Japanese relations with China, Russia, Germany and the United States.
This is digitized collection of about 4000 pamphlets and 3,800 monographs held at the Oliveira Lima Library at the Catholic University of America, published chiefly in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Topics include Brazilian and Portuguese history, literature, and politics, but nearly all topics and time periods beginning with the colonial era are represented.
The collection is divided into two sections:
Part I: Pamphlets brings together over 80,000 pages of pamphlets from 1800 to the late twentieth century.
Part II: Monographs features approximately one million pages of primary sources on Brazilian history from colony to republic, as well as the political and economic dimensions of Brazil and the Portuguese empire.
Moscow News (published 1930-2014) was the oldest English-language newspaper in Russia. From a mouthpiece of the Communist party to an influential advocate for social and political change, the pages of Moscow News reflect the shifting ideological, political, social and economic currents that have swept through the Soviet Union and Russia in the last century. The Moscow News Digital Archive offers scholars the most comprehensive collection available for this title, and features full page-level digitization, complete original graphics, and searchable text, and is cross-searchable with numerous other East View digital resources.
The Digital Archive contains all obtainable published issues (1930-2014, approx. 60,000 pages), including issues of the newspaper’s short-lived sister publication Moscow Daily News (1932-1938). Because this archive is sourced from a variety of collections in both the U.S. and Russia, some select issues may be missing.

It ranges from the early twentieth century to the 1980s and examines the themes of War & Revolution (Module 1), News & Current Affairs (Module 2), and Culture & Society (Module 3). All films have been versioned or dubbed into English and come with searchable transcripts.
Voennaia Mysl’(translated into English as "Military Thought" and published continuously in various formats and titles from 1918-Present) is generally regarded as the most authoritative military-theoretical journal in the USSR and subsequently post-Soviet Russia. Established in 1918, a year after the October Revolution, as Voennoe Delo, it underwent several name changes before the editors of the journal settled with its present name Voennaia Mysl’ in 1937.
The whole collection consists of 1087 issues, covers 99 years (1918-2018) with 13,025 searchable articles.
Published under the auspices of Ministry of Defense, this Russian language publication has, thoroughout its long history, attracted military strategists and theoreticians from the top echelons of the Soviet and Russian military, having become the topmost vehicle for the articulation of various Soviet and Russian military doctrines. With the beginning of the Cold War access to Voennaia Mysl’ became severely restricted with the covers carrying the classification stamp “For Generals, Admirals, and Officers Only.” The journal would remain classified until 1989. Due to the classified nature of the journal it became nearly impossible to find, thus achieving somewhat of a legendary status among Western scholars, military analysts, and experts on Soviet military strategy. Largely through the efforts of East View in 1990 the journal again became accessible to scholars and analysts in the West and particularly in the United States.
The Warsaw Pact Journal (Informatsionnyi sbornik) digital archive, spanning from 1970 to 1990, contains the complete run of the journal, comprising all 40 issues and over 1,000 articles.
The Warsaw Pact Journal Digital Archive (spanning 1970-1990) is a unique resource for historians and students of the Cold War. Coalition strategy and operations are the main subject of this highly secret and Soviet-led military-theoretical journal known colloquially as “ShOVS” – the Information Herald of the Staff of the Unified Armed Forces of the Warsaw Pact Member-States (Informatsionnyi sbornik ShOVS Varshavskogo Dogovora). Throughout its existence this publication played a major role in coordinating military doctrine, strategy and operational art among the Warsaw Pact members. During this time, it was virtually the only publication in which officers from all Pact countries actively contributed their analyses and essays. Of special interest to researchers and military historians is the history of military planning and operations, particularly in a coalition setting, since it provides important insights into the military culture and education of these countries.
