From the cover: An introduction to historical sociology, Force, Fate, and Freedom also serves as a critical analysis of the belief in economic and political progress through social knowl¬edge. The book develops the historicist approach to social change first championed by Max Weber. Following a theoretical introduction, Professor Bendix presents an overview of the foundations of political authority in Japan, Russia, Germany, France, and England, giving special attention to the development of authority in industry. Two remaining chapters analyze the problems of citizenship of the lower classes in the process of nation-building and the role that intel¬lectual mobilization plays in the process of modernization.
