"Organizing Modernity" provides a re-evaluation of Weber's work on the current debates about the institutional and organizational dynamics of modernity. It reassembles Weber's sociology of bureaucracy and his general account of the trajectory of modernity with reference to the strategic social structures that dominated the emergence and development of modern society.
