This extensive document is the result of an investigation conducted by the Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Department of the Army, with the assistance of the US Army Intelligence Command and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The intelligence report details the evolution of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), from its creation in 1960 through October of 1967 when this report was issued. The introduction states that SNCC:

"was created in 1960 as a nonviolent civil rights organization concentrating on Negro voter registration campaigns in the South, by 1965 SNCC had renounced its policy of non-violence and integration to advocate political and economic power for the Negro and to agitate against the United States involvement in Vietnam."
This report gives a detailed description of SNCC with summaries of its policy statements (including Vietnam), organizational structure, contacts with other organizations (both communist and otherwise), an account of SNCC protest activities, and descriptions of the personalities that made up the organization, including Stokely Carmichael, John Lewis, H. Rap Brown, George Ware, and Marion Barry.
