Review quote

-Paul Honigsheim (1885-1963) is perhaps best known in the US for his contributions to the sociology of music. However, this volume of papers presents another side of the author--as student, colleague, and friend of German sociologist Max Weber (1864-1920)... Sica sheds light on Weber as scientist and human being and on the first period of Weber's creativity, which Sica regards as Weber's -lost decade- because -only four essays have entered English language scholarship literally leaving 95 percent ... lost to our knowledge. . ..- This work not only enriches our knowledge of Weber the scholar and further illumines his productivity, but brings readers into contact with a promethean figure in a way that might have been otherwise impossible. This volume is required reading, deserving of the widest possible dissemination, and is highly recommended for all libraries.- --L. Braude, Choice -[A]ll of Honigsheim's essays provide useful resources for contextualist historians of ideas because they situate Weber, both intellectually and personally, in terms of swarming and darting allusions to a host of mainly German scholars.- --Ira J.
