The historical relationship between Protestantism, capitalism, and democracy remains one of the most controversial intellectual themes of out time. Max Weber's famous thesis about the link between the 'Protestant ethic' and the 'spirit of capitalism' and its dissolution in his own era has been both widely acclaimed and heatedly disputed since its publication in 1904-5. This volume, the result of an international, interdisciplinary effort, throws light on the intellectual and cultural background of Weber's work, debates recent criticism of Weber's thesis, and confronts new historical insight on the 17th century with Weber's interpretation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...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." Fritz Ringer, Central European History
