Reviews

"Sociologists interested in Max Weber can count themselves fortunate these days with the recent appearance of the second revised edition of Stephen Kalberg's new translation of Weber's work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. . . . Those teaching upper division undergraduate and graduate courses in social theory or the sociology of religion will find this volume an ideal introduction to Weber's work and to the continuing controversies
surrounding his famous thesis. At $14.95 in paper-bound edition, it is more than worth the price."-- Donald A. Nielsen, State University of New York Oneota
