A volume of reports commissioned for the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC). The JIC was formed of representatives from the intelligence services, the armed services, and the Foreign Office.

Subjects covered in this file include the military and technological capabilities of the Soviet Union and its satellites; likely Soviet strategies in the event of a major war; measures to improve intelligence gathering on the Soviet Union; the possibility of war between Afghanistan and Pakistan; the developing situation in China and the potential implications of a communist victory in the Chinese Civil War; and the potential communist threat to Hong Kong.
