Max Weber is surpassed only by Karl Marx in the breadth of his influence as a social scientist. This bio-bibliography presents a complete listing of printed translations of Weber's works into English and a comprehensive, annotated bibliography of the secondary literature in English about Weber and his work. The first part contains chapter-length biographies of Weber, an overview of Weber's reception in Anglo-America, and a brief discussion of archival holdings for those interested in primary sources. Kivisto and Swatos offer an assessment of existing studies of Weber's life and thought in lieu of a conventional biography. The bulk of the volume is devoted to providing a bibliographic guide to the secondary literature on Weber in English. Annotated entries are arranged in five topical chapters that focus on biography and intellectual history, social science methodology, religion, politics and social class, and modernity, rationality, and bureaucracy. Additional access to information is provided by two indexes: the author index lists the authors of all entries and the number(s) of their respective citations; the name and subject index identifies names that appear in titles or bibliographic entries and guides the researcher to subjects that may be treated in more than one chapter. This first annotated bibliography of works by and about one of modern sociology's founding fathers is a reference book for both scholars and students of social theory, historical sociology, the sociology of religion, and organizational sociology.

Editorial Reviews

?According to these scholarly authors, this work surpasses similar bibliographies because it is annotated and is arranged by subject. In addition, it is a complete listing of printed translations of the work of Max Weber into English, plus a comprehensive annotated bibliograph of secondary literature in English about Max Weber and his work.' More than 900 books, journal articles, and dissertations are included. The first part of the book consists of three essays: biographical information on Weber, his acceptance by English-speaking sociologist, and access to primary sources. Part 2 begins with a chronological listing of the works in translation and continues with the annotations of the secondary literature on Weber in English. These are divided into five subject areas, each containing a brief explanation of the broad topic. An author index, a very helpful index to names in titles and entries, and a subject index terminate the volume. Highly recommended to upper--division under-graduate and graduate collections.?-Choice
