In many of his writings, the German sociologist Max Weber condemned the rationality of modern bureaucratic government which, for him, restricted an individual’s freedom by compartmentalizing society. His view of the dangers of the modern state is perhaps best illustrated in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism where Weber notes that the “iron cage” of rationality extended to work as workers were forced, rather than compelled, to labor. Weber’s observation about the intersection between work and bureaucracy as the “iron cage of capitalism” has endured, in part, because of how thinkers, artists, and workers have continued to view the contemporary work-space.
The European Journal of American Culture (Intellect Ltd) is seeking reviewers for forthcoming issues of the interdisciplinary journal.
We are particularly interested in expanding the journal's current scope, and are looking to review not only academic texts, but also new fiction, poetry and non-fiction; film and television; photography and art books; and video games. We want the interdisciplinarity of the journal's articles to be matched with an engagment of diverse materials and texts in the reviews.
