Product Description:

This brilliant study opposes the Marxist concept of dialectical materialism and its view that change takes place through the conflict of opposites. Instead, Weber relates the rise of a capitalist economy to the Puritan determination to work out anxiety over salvation or damnation by performing good deeds — an effort that ultimately encouraged capitalism.

Product Description:

First published in 1905 this is one of the most renowned and controversial works of modern social science. It remains one of the key texts in sociology.
