Max Weber is one of the world's most important social scientists, and one of the most notoriously difficult to understand. This dictionary will aid the reader in understanding Weber's work. Every entry contains a basic definition, examples of and references to the word in Weber's writing, and references to important secondary literature. More than an elementary dictionary, however, this work makes a contribution to the general culture and legacy of Weber's work. The dictionary also contains extended entries for broader concepts and topics throughout Weber's work, including law, politics, and religion. Every entry in the dictionary delves into Weber scholarship and acts as a point of departure in discussion and research. As such, this book will be an invaluable resource to general readers, students, and scholars alike. Stanford Social Sciences, an imprint of Stanford University Press.
