Description

Product Description

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. Now more timely and thought provoking than ever, this esteemed classic of twentieth-century social science examines the deep
cultural "frame of mind" that existed at the birth of modern capitalism and to this day influences attitudes toward work in northern America and Western Europe.

In this volume, Stephen Kalberg revises his internationally acclaimed translation--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 readers 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.

Review


"Sociologists interested in Max Weber can count themselves fortunate these days with the recent appearance of the second revised edition of Stephen Kalberg''s new translation of Weber''s work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. . . . Those teaching upper division undergraduate and
graduate courses in social theory or the sociology of religion will find this volume an ideal introduction to Weber''s work and to the continuing controversies surrounding his famous thesis. At $14.95 in paper-bound edition, it is more than worth the price."-- Donald A. Nielsen, State University of
New York Oneota

This volume, translated by Stephen Kalberg,(2011), should not be confused with the Parsons translation (1930), nor with all those cheap editions that re-print the Parsons translation yet don''t even include the footnotes (as noted by many reviewers). Unlike the Parsons translation, Kalberg offers an extended introduction that lays out Weber''s argument with great clarity, a glossary, a chronology of Weber''s life, Weber''s two follow-up essays (''the Protestant Sects and the Spirit of Capitalism" and "Churches and Sects in North America"), one of Weber''s rebuttals to one of his critics, and the summary chapter on the spirit of capitalism from Weber''s General Economy History volume, It also includes a new translation of Weber''s "Prefatory Remarks," which introduces his entire ''economic ethics of the world religions'' (including Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and ancient Judaism) agenda. Finally, the Kalberg translation offers an extensive annotation of the text, innumerable clarifying endnotes for today''s reader, and in-text clarifications (in brackets). Finally, a translation that does justice to this masterful volume, ''perhaps the most influential book in the social sciences written in the twentieth century'' (Daniel Bell)..

I can read the German, but need to use an English translation to teach the book. I expected this translation to be good, given that it can refer to the earlier translations of Parsons and Baehr, but in fact, from the very first paragraph, the translation is littered with mistakes, often not very major, but enough to show that Kalberg doesn''t really "get" the German. E.g. An "it also must be noted" where it should be "Indeed, it should be noted" or an "although" where it should be an "especially". And he very often turns the sentences around, in order to make them more English, less German, but thereby loses the sense (!) of the sentence. I gave up on this translation after 8 pages, and got a copy of the Talcott Parsons translation (the Baehr translation is of Weber''s 1904-5 edition, not the 1920). I had read that Parsons'' translation was obscure and thorny, but that is simply not true; it was really excellent. One of two little things, but generally very good. I recommend that version, certainly not this one by Kalberg
