Synopsis

The Russian Revolutions by Max Weber

This book is the first English-language edition of Weber's writings on the revolutions in Russia in 1905 and February 1917. Weber discusses the events and examines the issue of Russian 'liberalization' and its prospects in a way that, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, has great relevance today.

Reviews

The editors have provided extensive notes and glossaries, both of which are necessary and useful in approaching Weber's detailed work. This book is a timely and telling addition to a number of fields of inquiry ... it gives us a clear example of Weber's political sociology applied to a practical and pressing situation. History of the Human Sciences 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

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
