"Where others have restricted themselves to brief interpretations of analyses of specific aspects of Weber's work, Bendix has attempted the full scale study that has long been needed. As such, it unquestionably fulfills the minimum requirements. It is admirably clear, well organized, inclusive, and based on long and conscientious research. For the student who wants an introductory guide to Weber, it will be a godsend, providing as it does the over all structure that the theoretician himself did not live to complete....Bendix's book proves not to be an 'intellectual portrait' at all: its subtitle is a misnomer. It is rather an expert and extremely useful key to his work. A really exciting and original book on Weber."—American Historical Review
