Reviews

Reviews of the first edition: 'The ambition of the conception is, against all conventional expectations, matched by the clarity and grandeur of the execution.' The Times Literary Supplement
'This work offers a treasure trove of facts and interpretations that will be useful to readers in many disciplines ...' Choice
'This is a book in the grand Weberian tradition. Mann's conceptual skills and historical grasp are virtuosic and the scope of his enterprise is truly impressive.' Politics and Society
'... a unique brand of historical sociology that is refreshingly iconoclastic, remarkably complex, and breathtakingly ambitious ... a must-read for comparative and historical sociologists.' Contemporary Sociology
