Product Description

Review

"Weber examines constitutional questions, problems of democracy, socialism, and economic policy, always with careful attention to the moral claims of political antagonists and their intellectual basis. The texts show his power as an analyst of politics and make clear that a serious consequentialist understanding of political life requires subtlety and historical understanding." Ethics

Book Description

Generally known as a founder of modern social science, Max Weber (1864-1920) was concerned with politics throughout his life. This edition spans his career to illustrate his thoughts on the fate of Germany and the nature of politics in the modern Western state within an age of cultural disenchantment.

Format: Paperback
How can anyone rate any book by Max Weber with less than 5 stars? This Cambridge edition of some texts he wrote about politics is extremely well done. The edition includes some of his great texts about the subject as "The Vocation of Politics", "Socialism" (where he comments that socialism would crumble when faced with burocracy) and the masterpiece "Parliement and Government in Germany". This book belongs in the library of anyone who wants to seriously understand politics in our time.
