Yugoslavia NIEs, 1948-1990



US Intelligence Community
Estimative Products
on Yugoslavia, 1948-1990

This collection of 34 declassified National Intelligence Estimates and memoranda represents the United States Intelligence Community’s most authoritative analysis of Yugoslavia, spanning four decades from the 1948 break with the Soviet Union until 1990 and the eve of the nation’s collapse. Over the years, these estimative products gave Washington policymakers keen insight into the major currents driving the maverick state, such as Belgrade’s fear of Soviet invasion and its need to balance between East and West, nationalism’s role as both a unifying and divisive force, and the race to establish lasting institutions before Tito’s inevitable demise.

This collection is a joint undertaking between the National Intelligence Council and the CIA’s Information Management Services, and was compiled by John Allen, a former National Intelligence Officer, under the aegis of the National Intelligence Officer for Europe Ambassador Richard Kauzlarich. It is the third such collection of declassified national estimative documents produced since 2004, including Tracking the Dragon, National Intelligence Estimates on China During the Era of Mao, 1948-1976 and Estimative Products on Vietnam, 1948-1975.
