From Marx to Mao
"My intention in setting up From Marx to Mao is not to "compete" with the MEIA, [Marx/Engles Internet Archive] 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."
By Dave Romagnolo

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.
