Where can I find information about the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series?

The Office of the Historian produces the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, which is the U.S. Government’s official documentary history of foreign policy decision-making and significant diplomatic activity. You can learn more about FRUS on our website.

We also maintain information about the current status of every FRUS volume that is currently in production or published recently. This page also identifies the volumes that we anticipate publishing this year.

All published volumes are available online and as downloadable ebooks. You can also browse, search, and read our FRUS collection online. Some recently published volumes may also be available for purchase as printed books from the Government Publishing Office’s bookstore.

Information in FRUS is in the public domain and can be used, copied, and distributed without seeking permission from the Office of the Historian, the Department of State, or any other component of the U.S. Government. For information about citing FRUS in your own work, please consult our recommendations.
