Jürgen Kocka is one of the foremost historians of Germany whose work has been devoted to the integration of different genres of the social and economic history of Europe during the period of industrialization. This collection of essays gives a representative sample of his effort to develop, by reference to Marx and Weber, new and powerful analytical tools for understanding the dynamics of modern industrial societies.
Jürgen Kocka holds the chair for the History of the Industrial World at the Free University Berlin and is a permanent Fellow of the Berlin Institute for Advanced Study. He is a member of the Academia Europaea Cambridge and of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences. In 1992 he received the Leibniz Prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
