Editorial Reviews

"A significant addition to the canon of Weberian scholarship, this book belongs on the shelf of anyone who would understand the work of Max Weber, because it clarifies and gives structure to what Weber meant by intellectuals in both the religious and political spheres, and because it clarifiesWeber's methodology in elegant but simple fashion....In short, a brilliant work."--Choice
