Books, question


I know it


Yuri, do you have any ISBN or other identifying numbers? I’m thinking most of these are government reports and so not the sort of material which normally would be available through commercial channels. Given all the uproar since 9-11-2001, even if they were de-classified at one time, they may be locked up today for reasons known only to hysterical old bureaucrats.

I had no luck running these through the book search operations which usually work for me and absolutely no hits in the Library of Congress catalog - although that doesn’t mean they are not in some restricted area.

But I guess its impossibly get them from library.


It is possible that more copies of those exist in Russian intelligence files than in all the US.


Yes its possibly but they are closed there. :)


I suggest that request them directly where noted - you will make their day.
