The most accurate and reader-friendly translation of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, by renowned Weber scholar Stephen Kalberg

In this volume, Stephen Kalberg revises his internationally acclaimed translation of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism—using shorter sentences and more lucid language—to make the work even more accessible to students and other readers. Capturing the essence of Weber’s style as well as the subtlety of his descriptions and causal arguments, this is the only translation of the revised 1920 edition of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism published since 1930.

To draw students into the material, this engaging volume includes extensive introductions by the editor, a chronology of Weber’s life, a glossary, and numerous clarifying endnotes. Detailed commentaries discuss the controversies Weber addressed, explain his complex causal argument by reference to the general contours of his sociology, summarize the history of “the Protestant Ethic debate,” and examine the significance of “the Protestant Sects” essays.
Ideal for courses in sociology, anthropology, political science, history, international relations, economics, and cultural studies, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand the origins and endurance of the modern West.
