By Alfred Weber

In offering this booklet to the general public i'm spared a humiliation that many writers come upon; i don't have to supply 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 wasteland of proof which has grown up round us over the past centuries in regards to the situation of our smooth production industries. to make certain, 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 a trifling enumeration of assorted components which performed a component in choosing the positioning of industries. whereas i'm really inspired with the significance of Weber swork itself, if basically understood, it truly is accurately this activity of creating it understood approximately which i think very apologetic. even with the assistance and recommendation 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 consider convinced that i've got succeeded in conquering the problems which confront the translator of this kind of hugely summary treatise. Had no longer Professor Marshall and Dr. Mason learn the total manuscript via and made a variety of feedback for its development, I worry I do not need discovered the braveness to permit it see the sunshine of day. it will likely be conceded by means of those that have launched into the harmful experience of translating summary idea from one language into one other that not anything is extra perplexing.
