About this book

Andreas Anter reconstructs Max Weber's theory of the modern state, showing its significance to contemporary political science. He reveals the ambivalence of Weber's political thought: the oscillation between an étatiste position, mainly oriented to the reason of state, and an individualistic one, focussed on the freedom of individuals

Reviews

'Max Weber's Theory of the Modern State is so good that it ought to be required reading for anyone who is interested in Weber's political thinking. Anter is right that Weber often approaches his topics with a 'yes but'; regarding the quality of Anter's book, there is no 'but' only a 'yes''. Christopher Adair-Toteff for Theory, Culture & Society
