Reviews

"The incoherence of modern life could be said to have been Weber's great subject. Weber used the term Entz -auberung--'dis-enchantment'--to describe the way in which science and technology had inevitably displaced magical thinking. . . . His writings anticipate both the rise and fall of the Soviet Union . . . and also the steady, soulless spread of global capitalism." --Elizabeth Kolbert, The New Yorker
