Marx-Engels-Gesamtausgabe (MEGA) is the largest collection of the works of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in German or any language. MEGA is an ongoing and incomplete project which is ultimately intended to reproduce the complete extant works of both authors. Initially issued by the Institutes of Marxism-Leninism of the SED in Berlin and the CPSU in Moscow and published by Dietz Verlag (Berlin) as a series launched in 1975, MEGA contains all works published by Marx and Engels in their lifetimes and numerous unpublished manuscripts and letters. All material in MEGA is edited in the original language it was written in by Marx and Engels, resulting in mostly German, but also English and French texts for example. Being a scholarly and academic, historical-critical (historisch-kritische) edition, most MEGA volumes consist of separate text and appendix books, the latter giving additional information on the edited text. After the fall of the Berlin Wall publishership of MEGA was transferred to the Internationale Marx-Engels-Stiftung (IMES) in Amsterdam, which continues work on the edition, whose current publishing house is Walter de Gruyter in Berlin. So far, 65 volumes of MEGA have been released. The whole project is expected to require 114 volumes. The project is presently being overseen by Gerald Hubmann.
