The answer tells us something important not only about Weber’s ideas, but also about the cultural and political crises and the intellectual history of the last hundred years. Presented in its first version as a history dissertation at Princeton, Max Weber in Politics and Social Thought investigates the transatlantic reception of Weber’s ideas primarily in Germany and the United States.

Maximilian Karl Emil Weber (/ˈveɪbər/; German: ; 21 April 1864 – 14 June 1920) was a German sociologist, philosopher, jurist, and political economist. Weber is often cited, with Émile Durkheim and Karl Marx, as among the three founders of sociology

Max Weber is widely regarded as one of the foundational thinkers of the twentieth century. But how did this reclusive German scholar manage to leave such an indelible mark on modern political and social thought? Max Weber in Politics and Social Thought is the first comprehensive account of Weber's wide-ranging impact on both German and American intellectuals. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Joshua Derman illuminates what Weber meant to contemporaries in the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany and analyzes why they reached for his concepts to articulate such widely divergent understandings of modern life. It also accounts for the transformations that Weber's concepts underwent at the hands of émigré and American scholars, and in doing so, elucidates one of the major intellectual movements of the mid-twentieth century: the transatlantic migration of German thought.

This is another fine example of intellectual history offered up by the Ideas in Context series from Cambridge University Press. This series is remarkably consistent in quality and exemplifies a variety of successful approaches to the field of intellectual history.
Joshua Derman's volume on Max Weber and his influence on German and American sociology, economic and political thought is maintains the high standard of the series.
The book provides a survey of those aspects of Weber's thought that were most impactive on his contemporaries and which were to prove most useful for his readers in America and German up until about the 1970s. Derman is not only trying to explicate what were Weber's intention in his work but how his contemporaries saw him, how they used his core themes or concepts in their own work and, just as interesting, how their use of that work diverged from Weber's own intentions. In particular, Derman wants to assert that early American translators of Weber's works like Parsons, Gerth and Mills created their own version of Weber which was to prove canonical for a long time for readers of Weber in English.
Derman's methodology is largely a history of concepts:
"To understand how German and American intellectuals thought with Weber, this book proposes to analyze his reception in terms of the concepts he coined and redefined...Weber's writings became seminal for the way German and American intellectuals conceived the "value freedom" of scholarship, the meaning of "modern capitalism", the task of "sociology" and the "charisma" of their political leaders." (p.7)
Derman's book then divides this exploration into individual chapters devoted to these individual concepts. I found three of those chapters to be quite well done and insightful. Prof. Derman is quite good at explicating these concepts. But what is most impressive is his insights into why those concepts were found so useful to Weber's contemporaries as well as to the thinkers who were to follow.
Derman has an interesting section on how Weber's "value freedom" influenced Karl Jasper's development into a existentialist (p.67-71).
The chapter on "modern capitalism" discusses Weber's, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, and its reception on both the left and the right. There is a good discussion of Sombart's influence on Weber as well as Weber's on Lukacs and Parsons.
The final chapter on charisma was to me the most interesting. There were several parts of the reception of this Weberian topos that I would not have expected. The first was that there was little use for this concept among National Socialist (Nazi) writers. "...[T]he suggestion that Hitler's place could be historicized or generalized through social-scientific terminology was considered demeaning to the Führer." (p.196) I had never thought of it that way before.
Equally surprising to me was that American thinkers for a long time refused to use the term to apply to our own politics. Instead, they applied it to leaders of developing countries. It was more popular writers like Russell Baker who began to apply it to our own politics. Derman points out the irony of a writer like Arthur Schlesinger, advisor to John F. Kennedy, ruling out the applicability to our contemporary politics.
On the flip side, Seymour Martin Lipset, had the insight to see George Washington as the type of charismatic leader "under whose guidance democratic political institutions could grow" (quoted on p. 210). Anyone who has read Madison's notes on the Constitutional Convention knows the truth of that observation.
Derman's books is not perfect. For the life of me, I do not understand his lack of discussion of Leo Strauss and Natural Right and History. But I always feel churlish making such a criticism in that I am basically complaining that Derman did not write the book I thought he should write.
This book will be of interest to any student of Weber and of such diverse writers as Karl Jaspers or Talcott Parsons. It will also be of interest to anyone interested in the interwar period in German history, in the history of sociology or intellectual history. I look forward to Prof. Derman's next work.

Joshua Derman mobilizes an astonishing amount of information to provide a subtle and accessible discussion about Max Webers main themes and their developments in the past 80 years sociogical theory. This book is particularly useful for those who don t feel comfortable with the banalization of Webers thought and the common efforts tô smooth out its many ambiguities.
