Abstract: This data set contains data for interventions recorded at daily intervals during the twenty-year period 1948-1967. The daily report is the unit of analysis. There are 1,073 records, one for each day on which an intervention occurred in a country. The number of records per country varies. If, for example, a country had no action meeting the criteria for inclusion as an intervention, no record is given for that day for that country. Those countries not involved in an intervention were excluded. Data are recorded for 89 of the 136 nations in the World Handbook Aggregate Data file and two international organizations. Some of the 31 variables included are the number of interveners, type of group involved, air and naval incursions, and length of intervener's presence in the country. The data sources are THE NEW YORK TIMES INDEX, ASSOCIATED PRESS, ASIAN RECORDER, AFRICAN RESEARCH BULLETIN, MIDDLE EAST JOURNAL, and AFRICAN DIARY.

EXTENT OF COLLECTION: 1 data file + machine-readable documentation.
