Originally published in German, this volume makes available in English the definitive Marxist critique of Max Weber's politics and method.

With Gramsci’s theory of hegemony as his starting point, this volume provides a comprehensive socio-analysis of Max Weber’s political and intellectual position in the ideological network of his time. Rehmann lucidly and witheringly argues that, even though Weber presents his science as’value-free,’ the forefather of sociology’s system is best understood as an organic intellectual of the bourgeoisie advocating for a new model of capitalist hegemony.
