By Alfred Weber

In proposing this publication to the general public i'm spared a humiliation that many writers come across; i don't have to provide an apology for the subject with which it offers. Alfred Weber streatise is a pioneering enterprise. He makes an attempt to grasp by means of theoretical research a whole barren region of evidence which has grown up round us over the past centuries in regards to the position of our sleek production industries. to ensure, others have ventured upon the duty of describing and classifying the phenomena of geographical distribution; yet, as Weber issues out, earlier writers didn't get past an insignificant enumeration of varied components which performed a component in opting for the positioning of industries. whereas i'm rather inspired with the significance of Weber swork itself, if truly understood, it truly is accurately this job of creating it understood approximately which i think very apologetic. regardless of the assistance and suggestion which Professors Leon C. Marshall and Frank W. Taussig, in addition to Drs. E. H. Chamberlin, William Y. Elliot, Edward Mason, Talcott Parsons, and Andreas Pred hl have so generously afforded me, i don't think convinced that i've got succeeded in conquering the problems which confront the translator of this type of hugely summary treatise. Had now not Professor Marshall and Dr. Mason learn the complete manuscript via and made a variety of feedback for its development, I worry I do not need stumbled on the braveness to permit it see the sunshine of day. will probably be conceded by means of those that have launched into the damaging event of translating summary idea from one language into one other that not anything is extra perplexing.
