Max Weber : a biography by Marianne Weber( Book )

24 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A founder of contemporary social science, Max Weber was born in Germany in 1864. At his death 56 years later, he was nationally known for his scholarly and political writings, but it was the international reception of his oeuvre over the last forty years that has made him world-famous. "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism," "The Economic Ethics of the World Religions" and his magnum opus, "Economy and Society," with its treatment of the relations of economics, politics, law and religion, belong to the great achievements of 20th-century social science. The groundwork for the posthumous Weber reception was laid by Weber's widow Marianne, a well-known feminist writer, who followed up her edition of his collected works with one of the greatest biographies in a generation that produced many important accounts of itself. Although unavailable in English until a decade ago, the importance of Marianne Weber's 1926 work had been widely understood. Sociologist Robert A. Nisbet called it "a moving and deeply felt biographical memoir." Historian Gerhard Masur cited the book as "the foundation of all further inquiries into Max Weber's life and influence."Beginning with Max's ancestry and early years, Marianne Weber guides us through his life as student, young lawyer, scholar and political writer, quoting liberally from his voluminous correspondence. Her account of his nervous breakdown after 1897, which curtailed his academic career but ultimately strengthened his creative energies, provides deep insight into some of the personal tensions that troubled him to the end. In addition to her perceptive personal and intellectual life before the First World War, describing many scholars, social reformers, politicians and literary figures within and beyond the famous Heidelberg circle of the Webers. The new introduction by Guenther Roth situates Marianne Weber's own role in the contemporary setting and discusses the current state of Weber research and of the"--Provided by publisher
Karl Kraus and the critics by Harry Zohn( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Kraus and the Critics, the first study devoted entirely to a century of critical reactions to this controversial satirist, who was both deified and vilified in his lifetime and in the six decades since his death, attempts to reduce an enormous amount of criticism to manageable dimensions and to give a typology of this commentary. By means of copious quotation from both major and minor studies as well as reliable translation it provides some access to criticism that has been published only in German. A chronology of Kraus's life and works and an extensive bibliography of both primary and secondary writings are intended to enhance the reference value of this book and to stimulate further reading and research
