Max Weber an intellectual biography by Fritz K Ringer ( )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Max Weber was one of the most influential and creative intellectual forces of the twentieth century.

Max Weber's methodology the unification of the cultural and social sciences by Fritz K Ringer ( )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At a time when historical and cultural analyses are being subjected to all manner of ideological and disciplinary prodding and poking, the work of Max Weber, the brilliant social theorist and one of the most creative intellectual forces in the twentieth century, is especially relevant.

Grounding technical theories in specific examples, Ringer has written an essential text for all students of Weber and of social theory in the humanities and social sciences
