Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the most renowned and controversial works of modern social science."
-Anthony Giddens
"Max Weber is the one undisputed canonical figure in contemporary sociology."
-Times Higher Education Supplement

From the Publisher

A brilliant book which studies the psychological conditions which made possible the development of capitalist civilization. The book analyzes the connection between the spread of Calvinism and a new attitude toward the pursuit of wealth in post-Reformation Europe and England, and attitude which permitted, encouraged--even sanctified--the human quest for prosperity. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
