Useful, obviously. But this collection is poorly edited. Eisenstadt's introduction is far less readable in the original English than Weber is in translation. Some of the essays in the collection are redundant. Inadequate source information is provided for them. The organizing principle of the collection is sound, however; I think we need someone to make a new attempt.
