"My intention in setting up From Marx to Mao is not to "compete" with the MEIA, which is an impossible task given the many volunteers who participate in that project, so much as it is to provide an on-line version of very important texts, most especially by Lenin, which are long, long overdue."

Marxists Internet Archive
"The Marxists Internet Archive provides the most complete database of Marxism hitherto made. The archive is divided into three major sections: Marxist writers, Marxist history, and reference materials. The Marxist Writers archive holds extensive databases of documents, photos, and biographies on a wide variety of Marxists from Karl Marx and Frederick Engels to Che Guevara to Vladimir Lenin to Rosa Luxemburg. The Marxist History archive contains original documents on the Paris Commune, the early history of the Soviet Union, the history of the Spanish Civil War and the Encyclopedia of Marxism; which contains biographies, terms, organizations, events, places and periodicals relevant to the history of Marxism. The Reference Writers archive holds non-Marxist authors, from Adam Smith to Albert Einstein; Joseph Stalin to Michael Bakunin, and features a large database on Hegel ... Archival information is material written by the authors themselves (primary sources), not interpretations or opinions of that material (secondary or tertiary sources). In our archive on history we only publish documents by people who experienced the events themselves (primary sources), not people interpreting or explaining their opinion of events they did not experience (secondary or tertiary sources) ..."

Scholars, particularly those who do not have ready access to major research libraries, also will benefit from the mass of primary material included in Meeting of Frontiers, much of which has never been published or is extremely rare.
