Description: The Confidential Print series, issued by the Foreign and Colonial Offices since around 1820, is one of the most important series produced by the British Government (The National Archives, Kew). It originated out of a need for the Government to preserve all of the most important papers generated by the Foreign and Colonial Offices. Some of these were one-page letters or telegrams; others were large volumes or texts of treaties. All items marked "Confidential Print" were printed and circulated immediately to leading officials in the Foreign Office, to the Cabinet and to heads of British missions abroad. The documents of Confidential Print: Latin America cover the whole of South and Central America, plus the non-British islands of the Caribbean, from just after the final Spanish withdrawal from mainland America in the 1820s to the height of the Cold War in the 1960s. Covering revolutions, territorial changes and political movements, foreign financial interests, industrial and infrastructural development (including the building of the Panama Canal), wars, slavery, immigration from Europe and relations with indigenous peoples. It includes materials such as:
- Profiles of leading political, military, diplomatic and economic figures;
- Incoming and outgoing diplomatic dispatches;
- Statistical charts and tables;
- Descriptions of leading personalities;
- Accounts of tours;
- Minutes of meetings and conferences;
- Texts of treaties;
- Political summaries;
- Economic analyses;
- Annual reports and calendars of events, by country.
The resource also features 300 color maps, a number of them previously separated from their parent files at The National Archives but cross-referenced with those files here for ease of scholarly use.
