 **Description** The Maoist Legacy Database is an open-access archive containing thousands of items related to the research focus - the late Mao era and post-Mao transition, in particular related to: the CCP's standards, institutions, and processes of administrating historical justice; regional variances in implementing these policies between center and periphery; and the impact of the reversal of verdicts on social stability and CCP rule. While most documents are from the Cultural Revolution period to the 1980s, coverage spans the late 1940s to the 1990s. More from the database website: "[The MLD] contains a carefully curated selection of thousands of documents and images on issues related to dealing with the legacies of the Maoist era. The documents have mostly been taken from party and state guidelines on how to deal with “lingering historical issues” (lishi yiliu wenti). These official documents have been supplemented with internally circulated collections of model cases, oral history transcripts of interviews we conducted, and other relevant materials. A selection of key documents have been translated into English to ease comparative work for scholars with no background in China studies. In compiling the database, we have strictly followed German copyright and privacy laws. The database is solely intended for scholarly, non-commercial use."\\ **Description** The Maoist Legacy Database is an open-access archive containing thousands of items related to the research focus - the late Mao era and post-Mao transition, in particular related to: the CCP's standards, institutions, and processes of administrating historical justice; regional variances in implementing these policies between center and periphery; and the impact of the reversal of verdicts on social stability and CCP rule.
