Max Weber (1864-1920) remains a key figure in the rise of sociology as an international discipline in its own right. This study of Weber’s sociology, written by an eminent authority, is a clear and illuminating discussion of the most important elements of Weber’s thinking. The author presents Weber’s contribution to social and political theory in a new and fascinating light, whilst his admiration for the scope of Weber’s work is tempered by a cool and measured critique of his theories and methods. The book concentrates on four main elements of Weber’s work: his approach to sociological method, ethical neutrality and historical explanation; his influential work on religion and capitalism; his theory of authority and political power; and his contribution to the analysis of class, status and party.
