From the Publisher
“Max Weber (1864-1922) belongs to the German school of historical sociologists and ranks with Werner Sombart as a leading exponent of the historical development of social life…. The expression of a natural wish that Weber had actually written this book with his own hand must not be construed as ingratitude to the editors and students who, with commendable enterprise, took pains to pass on so much important and scholarly work to those who had not the privilege of hearing the lectures.”
—Alfred Plummer, The Economic Journal
“This volume contains a collection of lectures on economic history by Max Weber, who laboured for many years to fashion out a system of sociology and won the highest renown in Germany…. [S]o well worth study is this book that it must surely inspire its readers with the desire that Weber’s principal works should be also rendered into English.”
—R. F. Harrod, Journal of the Royal Institute of International Affairs
