Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Max Weber's Theory of the Modern State is so good that it ought to be required reading for anyone who is interested in Weber's political thinking. Anter is right that Weber often approaches his topics with a 'yes but'; regarding the quality of Anter's book, there is no 'but' only a 'yes''. Christopher Adair-Toteff for Theory, Culture & Society
