- A Century of
Lawmaking--An amazing site that contains all congressional debates, as
well as a host of other government source material, for the period from 1773
through 1873. Particularly useful for the 1810s debates about recognition of
Spanish-America and the constitutional/ideological debates between the
Mexican War and the Civil War.
Relations of the United States--A few years ago,
the State Department began releasing these volumes, which contain the
official internal correspondence of the US government regarding foreign
affairs, in web versions. General Latin American material, alas, is scarce,
but the volumes for Cuba between 1961 and 1962 are on line.
Relating to United States Foreign Policy--Another very useful site.
Arranged chronologically until 1945, thematically thereafter.
- National Security Archive--Useful
for intelligence-related documents from the post-1945 material, it has just
released a large batch of documents on the US involvement in the 1973
Chilean coup. See me for instructions about accessing it.
