Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS)
Ford Administration Volumes

The Foreign Relations of the United States series presents the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions and significant diplomatic activity. The series, which is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian, began in 1861 and now comprises more than 350 individual volumes. The volumes published over the last two decades increasingly contain declassified records from all the foreign affairs agencies.

After many years of research visits to the Ford Presidential Library, the FRUS staff are now issuing the volumes and e-volumes covering the Ford years. The electronic volumes are located on a State Department web site, but we provide the following links to them due to the inclusion of Ford Library documents.

  • Volume XVIII, China, 1973-1976
  • Volume XXVI, Arab-Israeli Dispute, 1974-1976 (Egypt, Israel, Sinai Accords, and Lebanon civil war)
