* A tour-de-force
* It will add a significant chapter to our understanding of Weber's life and work.
"This volume will be of interest to two kinds of people: those who are interested in the sociology of Max Weber and those whose field is Russian history. For the historian of Russia, Weber's 'chronicles' of the 1905 revolution are extremely instructive. This is not only because they give a contemporary perspective on events, but because Weber was concerned to analyse the social dynamic behind the current crisis in Russia ... the insight they provide into the peculiarities of Russian social and political development is of a genuine and enduring value. They could even be read with profit by those wishing to understand Russian society of the present day!" Slavonica
