About the Magazine

The monthly Dispatch Magazine (ISSN 1051-7693) provides the major speeches and congressional testimony from the State Department. It is published by the Office of Public Communication, Bureau of Public Affairs.

Its predecessor, the Department of State Bulletin, was the official record of U.S. foreign policy from 1939-1989. While the Bulletin is unavailable on the web, you may find reference hard copies through federal depository libraries and in public and university libraries throughout the United States.
