Basic Concepts in Sociology (book)


Basic Concepts in Sociology (book)

"Basic Concepts in Sociology" is a book written by Maximilian Weber, a German economist and sociologist. The original edition was published in German, but various translations to English exist. The first known of these was written in 1952.

This is part of a monumental work that was interrupted by Weber's death. He attempted to summarize all important concepts of sociology in that part.
