“Nick Gane has established a strong reputation as acommentator on social theory and, in particular, on Max Weber. He starts hispresent book by making clear that his aim was not simply to write another bookon Weber. … It certainly provides us with many insights into certaincontemporary theories and guidance for using these theories to understandaspects of contemporary capitalism.” (John Scott, Max Weber Studies, Vol. 15(2), December, 2015)
'Social Theory has long needed texts which do not merely rehearse the arguments of the major founding figures, but also address the question of how to theoretically grasp our present circumstances. Nicholas Gane's shows how the various strands of contemporary capitalism work, while at the same time deepening our understanding of Max Weber's influential theoretical agenda. He accomplishes this dual focus with clarity, intelligence and insight. This important book asks all the right questions.' - Mike Featherstone, Professor and Director of the Theory, Culture and Society Centre, Nottingham Trent University, UK and Editor-in-Chief of Theory, Culture & Society and Body & Society
