About this Book

This unique volume gathers Weber's writings on a broad array of themes, from the nature of work, to the political culture of democracy, to the uniqueness of the West, to the character of the family and race relations, to the role of science and the fate of ethical action in the modern world.

  • Gathers Weber's writings in a comprehensive collection, organized by topic.
  • Rejuvenates a central, pivotal theme of Weberian thought: "How do we live?" and "How can we live in the industrial society?"
  • Connects Weber's writings to contemporary issues through modern essays and editorial introductions.
