The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism

Max Weber and Translated with Commentary by Stephen Kalberg

For more than 100 years, Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism has set the parameters for the debate over the origins of modern capitalism. In this volume, Stephen Kalberg revises his internationally acclaimed translation--using shorter sentences and more lucid language--in order 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 engaging volume also includes extensive introductions by the editor, a chronology of Weber's life, a glossary, and numerous clarifying endnotes.

New to this Edition:

  • A revised translation that improves on what was already the best translation on the market.
