Primary Sources

Max Weber Gesamtausgabe (Collected Works) have been published continuously since 1984 by J. C. B. Mohr(Paul Siebeck), the original publisher of Weber's works, in Tübingen, Germany. Commissioned by the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the original editorial committee consisted of Horst Baier, M. Rainer Lepsius, Wolfgang Mommsen (deceased), Wolfgang Schluchter, and Johannes Winkelmann (deceased). This monumental project plans a total of forty-one volumes in three divisions, i.e., twenty-three volumes of Writings and Speeches, eleven volumes of Correspondences and six volumes of Lectures and Lecture Notes, of which about 2/3 have been published as of 2010. For updates, the reader is referred to the publisher's web page for the Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe.

Primary Texts

In English, too, new translations have appeared over the past decade or so. Most notable among them would be The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism by Peter Baehr/Gordon C. Wells (Penguin Books, 2002) and Stephen Kalberg (Roxbury Publishing Co., 2002). Reflecting the latest Weber scholarship, both editions have many virtues, especially in terms of enhanced readability and adequate contextualization. Talcott Parson's classic edition is still listed below because it is the most widely available text in English.
