Max Weber II
Critical Assessments 2nd Series
Edited by Peter Hamilton
Routledge – 1992
A companion volume to Max Weber: Critical Assessments (1), Max Weber: Critical Assessments (2) presents a representative selection of the scholarship which analyses Weber's political, legal, economic and historical work in greater detail, and conforms to a wider debate about the relevance of Weber's historical and political thought to contemporary concerns.
The sheer scale of new Weber scholarship means that a completely new selection of 80 articles has been published. This set of critical assessments concentrates on key themes in the re-thinking of Weber, dealing more closely with the political, legal, economic and historical components of his work.
Peter Hamilton teaches sociology at Open University.
