Language: English.

Self description: "CWIHP was established at the Woodrow Wilson
International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., in 1991 with the
generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The
Cold War International History Project disseminates new information and
perspectives on the history of the Cold War, in particular new findings
from previously inaccessible sources on "the other side" -- the former
Communist world."

Description: A top quality resource for the history of the cold war. Its
Virtual Archive is fully searchable (try a quick search for "china"), but
also files the documents according to the following topics: (1) Bulletin
Issue; (2) Keywords; (3) Keyword/Subject; (4) Keyword/Year; (5) Collection;
(6) Geographic Subject. Includes among others important original sources on
Sino-US and Sino-Soviet relations from the 1960s.

Site contents: (1) Upcoming Events; (2) CWIHP Bulletin (recently released
and translated documents from former Communist-world archives, along with
brief introductions by leading Cold War historians and archivists); (3)
CWIHP Working Paper Series (outlet for historians who have gained access to
newly-available archives and sources and would like to share their
results); (4) CWIHP Virtual Archive (all material from the Bulletin and the
Working Paper Series fully available on-line; includes searching facility).

Note: All material freely available!
