Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The volume as a whole amply fulfils the editor's intention to produce 'a selection which will, so far as is possible within a single volume, give the English-speaking reader an overall picture of Weber's contribution to the remarkably wide range of topics in the social sciences to which he addressed himself over his career.' Economic Journal

'Mr Runciman's carefully edited selections (fluently, indeed brilliantly, translated by Mr Matthews) offer a most serviceable introduction. The oeuvre of a giant is not easily condensed: but most of these selections go right to the core of what Weber had to say about methodology, about religion, bureaucracy and law, and of his contributions to comparative economic history.' The Observer

'The editor has trusted his own good judgement, including some familiar pieces and some unfamiliar ones, and he has modestly kept his own comments to a minimum. The translator has worked to great effect. And the publisher has produced a very elegant book. The result is a first-class collection, the best of its kind.' New Society
