The Sociology and Professionalization of Economics contains essays on the social nature of economics as a science; on the origin and history of some of the institutions which have done most to shape the development of the discipline; and on economics as a profession. As with the other volumes in the series there is particular emphasis on the similarity and differences between economics and economists in Britain and in North America. The volume is divided into three parts. The first addresses issues in the sociology of economics, including possible applications of ideas from the soicology of knowledge and of science to economics and the importance of journals to the discipline. The second includes pioneering work on the establishment and development of such important institutions as the American Economic Association and the Royal Economic Society. The Book concludes with essays on economics as a profession with particular emphasis to the role of economists in government.

Max Weber's "Economy and Society" is the greatest sociological treatise written in this century. Published posthumously in Germany in the early 1920's, it has become a constitutive part of the modern sociological imagination. "Economy and Society" was the first strictly empirical comparison of social structures and normative orders in world-historical depth, containing the famous chapters on social action, religion, law, bureaucracy, charisma, the city, and the political community with its dimensions of class, status and power. "Economy and Society" is Weber's only major treatise for an educated general public. It was meant to be a broad introduction, but in its own way it is the most demanding textbook yet written by a sociologist. The precision of its definitions, the complexity of its typologies and the wealth of its historical content make the work a continuous challenge at several levels of comprehension: for the advanced undergraduate who gropes for his sense of society, for the graduate student who must develop his own analytical skills, and for the scholar who must match wits with Weber. When the long-awaited first complete English edition of "Economy and Society" was published in 1968, Arthur Stinchcombe wrote in the "American Journal of Sociology": 'My answer to the question of whether people should still start their sociological intellectual biographies with "Economy and Society" is yes'. Reinhard Bendix noted in the "American Sociological Review" that the 'publication of a compete English edition of Weber's most systematic work [represents] the culmination of a cultural transmission to the American setting...It will be a study-guide and compendium for years to come for all those interested in historical sociology and comparative study'. In a lengthy introduction, Guenther Roth traces the intellectual prehistory of "Economy and Society", the gradual emergence of its dominant themes and the nature of its internal logic. Mr. Roth is a Professor of Sociology at Columbia University. Mr. Wittich heads an economic research group at the United Nations.

Biography -- History -- Political Science -- Economics For over half a century, Canadian-born John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908) has been among the most visible of public intellectuals. His articulate and controversial best-selling books-including "The Affluent Society, " "Economics and the Public Purpose, " and "The New Industrial State"-and his very partisan liberal Democrat political and public service activities secured a place for him among the rich and famous of his time. He worked as an adviser to President John F. Kennedy, served as U.S. ambassador to India (1961-1963), and edited "Fortune" magazine during the mid-1940s. Among American economists of any era, he is rivaled only by Thorstein Veblen for the introduction of phrases that take on a life of their own in the literate idiom. Such Galbraithian phrases as "the conventional wisdom" and the "affluent society" have become familiar even beyond Galbraith's remarkably wide readership. No other economist of the twentieth century, excepting perhaps John Maynard Keynes, can claim so secure a place in the "belles-lettres" of the English-speaking world. This collection of interviews documents the long career of an influential economist and political philosopher who has spent much of his professional life in the public eye. Many of the interviews are occasioned by publication of his books and contain their key themes such as the importance of Keynes, the need to include power in economic thinking, and the neglected priorities of aesthetics, poverty, and the environment in affluent America. The interviews also indicate Galbraith's wide-ranging public service and his frequent hobnobbing with the political and intellectual elite. Through the collection, which spans over four decades, Galbraith's erudition, wit, and impassioned liberalism shine through, making this volume an essential companion to his works. James Ronald Stanfield, a professor of economics at Colorado State University, is the author of "John Kenneth Galbraith, " "The Economic Thought of Karl Polanyi: Lives and Livelihood, " and "Economics, Power, and Culture: Essays in the Development of Radical Institutionalism." Jacqueline Bloom Stanfield, a professor of sociology at the University of Northern Colorado, is the author of "Married with Careers: Coping with Role Strain." Her work has appeared in such periodicals as "Social Science Journal, " "American Journal of Economics and Sociology, " and "Review of Social Economy.".
