FROM MARX TO MAO
As you are undoubtedly aware, the Marx/Engels selections in this site are not numerous. If any of you have access to the Chinese editions of any texts (e. g., Class Struggles in France, 1848-1850 ), would you be willing to loan them (or sell them) to me? They will be returned to you in the same condition as I received them. That is a promise!
A special thanks to those who have trusted me with their material(s) or provided me with photocopies of important texts.

- RG for Lenin's What Is To Be Done? and most of the image files that adorn this site.
