From The Publisher:
The essays on Ancient Judaism appeared between 1917 and 1919. They represent decades of study of Mediterranean antiquity and the great world religions. According to Weber, the world historical importance of Judaism is not exhausted by the fact that it fathered Christianity and Islamism. It compares in historical significance to Hellenic intellectual culture, Roman Law, the Roman Catholic church resting on the Roman concept of office, the medieval estates, and Protestantism.
New relations are perceived between old facts when Weber brings the varied talents of jurist, economist, historian, linguist and philosopher to the task of integration.
"No one who has occupied himself with the study of Israelite culture can fail to admire the great sweep, the prevailing accuracy, and the true sensitivity of Weber's sociological analysis"

About the Author
Polymathic and enormously influential, Max Weber is known among other things for his analysis of modernity as a process of rationalization and disenchantment, and for his "realist" emphasis on the charismatic nature of political leadership.
