Overview

This is a specially commissioned set of essays on the themes of Max Weber, culture, anarchy and politics. It presents the first complete publication (in both English and German) of a series of letters written by Max Weber in 1913 and 1914 during his stays at the anarchist settlement of Ascona. The letters show Weber debating with the issues of free love, eroticism, patriarchy, anarchism, terrorism, pacifism, political and personal convictions and power. These themes are taken up by the contributors in a wider discussion of the relation of culture and politics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eleven essays examine how the culture of the educated middle class promoted alliances with both anarchist left and political right in Wilhelmine Germany, and present the thought of the German sociologist of the times, Max Weber. The book features a series of letters Weber wrote in 1913-14 that show his exploration of free love, eroticism, patriarchy, anarchism, terrorism, pacifism, and politics.
