"...this volume represents a substantial contribution to the subject...The essays that deal with the context represent an especially welcome enlargement of information and insight for English-language readers of The Protestant Ethic who have until now lacked access to many of the German contextual materials." Contemporary Sociology "...this interesting volume shows that in the Anglo-American context it has not entirely lost its capacity to stimulate reflection and research."
