Overview

2012 Reprint of Original 1947 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. ©New Foreword Martino Publishing. This volume contains a full and representative statement of Max Weber's sociological theory, drawn from important publications never previously translated.

The typology is copiously illustrated with material from many periods of history and parts of the world. Chapters include:
