The acquisitive society by R. H Tawney( Book )

145 editions published between 1920 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 2,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Acquisitive Society is a classic analysis of the traditional theory of individual property rights. It shows how that theory, although appropriate to the simple economic situation for which it was formulated, has resulted in the twentieth century in waste, inequality, and a struggle between the classes. This book suggests as an alternative that rights of property and industrial organization should be based upon a different principle - the principle of function. Acceptance of this principle would have certain practical effects: it would abolish proprietary rights when they are not accompanied by a discharge of obligations to society, and it would organize industry as a profession directed to the service of the public"

History and society : essays by R. H Tawney( Book )

22 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.H. Tawney believed that the subject of economic history raises questions which touch the fundamental concerns of all thinking people. By setting economic development firmly within the framework of cultural and political life, he provided an alternative to the recent fragmentation of economic history into a number of increasingly technical specialisms. For this reason, his work has appealed to Marxists and non-Marxists alike, and still remains controversial. First published in 1978, the introduction by J.M. Winter to this edition
The Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism by Max Weber( Book )

32 editions published between 1930 and 2010 in English and German and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brilliant study opposes the Marxist concept of dialectical materialism and its view that change takes place through the conflict of opposites. Instead, Weber relates the rise of a capitalist economy to the Puritan determination to work out anxiety over salvation or damnation by performing good deeds - an effort that ultimately encouraged capitalism
