Weber by Gianfranco Poggi
Book DescriptionIn this short and accessible introductory text, Gianfrano Poggi offers a masterly account of the most important themes in Weber's writings. Assuming no previous knowledge of Weber's work, the book focuses on his conception of sociology, social process, religion, and the genesis and nature of the modern state. This is Poggi at his very best. His account is authoritative, but unpretentious, intellectually sophisticated, but still highly readable. As such, this highly perceptive book is bound to become an indispensable guide to Weber's key ideas, suitable for use by anyone requiring a concise and yet scholarly introduction to Weber's work, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
