Norbert Elias has been recognized as one of the key social scientists of the 20th century. He is particularly well known for his book The Civilizing Process, his discussions on sport and violence and, more largely, his figurational approach. This book addresses many important topics by using Elias´s framework—such as literature, capital punishment, prisons, sexual violence, life and death, court, State Formation, relations between the sexes and sports—thus showing the richness of his analytical tools.
